    Auto downloading images is also an extreme privacy risk, especially for a mobile device. You're downloading images from an external server, most likely hosted by the newsletter or spammer sending you the email. Information about you, your phone, your carrier, and who knows what else, are given to the spammer. If the images download, they know you read the email. They track that. You shouldn't disable tap to download even if it were an option.

    And when implemented in future version most of you will be happy they finally have it. Lot of holiday sales emails come as images and it sucks to do that extra click always. They should add an option in settings unless it's way complicated to implement. Is it the same on Windows RT?

    The best thing for WP would be if they leave it as is by default. I could go along with setting approved senders, but anyone who downloads every image that comes into their email is about as big a fool as I can imagine.

    So why not put an option for downloading pics automatically on wifi, but keeping the tap to download on mobile internet? Also, just a setting for turning tap to download of :P

    Because data isn't the only reason for tap to download. Even in Outlook 2013, it doesn't automatically download images.

    I have just moved to WP from my iPhone 5S cos there are many things I like about the OS and devices (bought a Lumia 1520).
    Stumbled across this thread because this pictures thing is one I really don't. I think there should be the facility to automatically have the images presented in each email. It works flawlessly in iOS, so what makes it different on WP8? If MS want to have additional security I think that's no bad thing but then there should be a safe sender list who I can add to, so that these sender's emails automatically display images. Email workflow is dramatically slowed down by waiting for loading images. You can't just scan emails as things stand and as I could on iOS.
