Hotmail/Windows Live

Remote images in emails are a privacy threat and it’s a good idea to block them in Windows Live Hotmail. But not all images are dangerous, and some emails lose a lot if they lose their pictures.

Even if you have blocked remote images in Windows Live Hotmail (for mail from senders who are not in your address book), you can still selectively view emails with their images.
