        Airmail needs to be like other email solutions and block communication the sites enabling the tracking. Like Mail Butler for instance. 99% of images are harmless so why should we not autoload images? The spyware 1% (though that percentages is increasing fast) should not be allowed to "phone home". Even if we keep all images from auto downloading, an important image to the context of the email could require us to manually load the image and that image would then be able to l communicate with the tracking server. Airmail should prevent such tatics at the users option.

        Mail Butler has this feature too. I'm trying to switch to AirMail, but the lack of tracking blocking keeps me thinking about Mail Butler the most.

        Can you not just block all images (that is already a feature, although it has a bug recently, preventing you from clicking links)? (any image can be used to track you, not just a pixel)

        Please. This is the greatest email client and this would make ever so much better!

        Agreed, this would be a fantastic addition...

        This definitely needs to be implemented, given the dramatic rise in the use of email tracking services (and how easy this is to do from apps like Airmail)
