Default e-Mail: Downloading Internet Images - HELP

Please Login to Remove!

Even though I have my settings to "Download Images Automatically" set to "Yes", I will get some HTML e-mails with image holders. I select "Get Images" and get a warning:

"Downloading Internet Images can expose your e-mail address. Continue?"

Should I be concerned? What does this mean?

Should I get the images or not?

Thanks for your help.

Yes, get the images. This the way it works.

You should not be concerned. On most HTML emails, you will need to "get images" and the warning is always there.
