How can I set Outlook to automatically download and open pictures when I open an HTML email message in Outlook 2010? - Article 2550

Choose File | Options | Trust Center | Trust Center Settings and de-select "Don't Download pictures automatically in HTML e-mail messages or RSS items."

NOTE: this applies to all messages that you receive. If you would like to only download pictures from certain senders, you can add the sender to your Safe Senders list.


  1. Right click on the message.
  2. Select “Junk E-mail”.
  3. Select “Add Sender to Safe Senders List”. The pictures will show in emails from that sender.
