Moved from Community Answers Forum - Outlook 2016 RSS Feeds - Some Pictures Have Been Blocked RRS feed

  • Question

  • A moderator on the MS Answers Community Forum asked me to move this over to TechNet - Any suggestions/responses to my questions would be greatly appreciated:

    Using Outlook 2016 on Windows 10:
    When subscribed to an RSS feed, my preference would be to not have to open external windows in order to view full content of RSS message attachments, rather having everything display within the main Outlook window message body:

    1.  Right-click on article -> Download Content -> Download Article
    2.  In article body, right-click on attached article and select Preview
    3.  A message banner appears above the article body stating "Some pictures have been blocked to help prevent the sender from identifying your computer. Open this item to view the pictures."

    Steps taken to resolve:
    I turned off Options -> Trust Center Settings -> Automatic Download -> Don't download pictures automatically, restarted Outlook, issue persists.

    I'm unable to find any other related option in Outlook that might affect this.

    Is there a way to "trust" and RSS Feed source, or is the inability to display photos in a article preview within the article attachment body of Outlook an actual limitation of Outlook - I would assume the answer is no, since RSS Feed article body itself is actually displaying pictures. Just the attachment is having the problem.

  • Thanks Richard.

    Anyone know if I should start a new thread, or if a moderator will move the message to the correct destination Robert's suggestion?
