Yahoo Mail has a dedicated image filtration tool designed to stop images in emails from loading automatically when you open them. While this tool is handy for stopping spam, it can also block legitimate images. Visit the security settings section of your Yahoo Mail account to turn off the image blocker.

Visit the Yahoo or Yahoo Mail website, sign in to your account and click the “Mail” tab on the main menu, if it’s not already selected.

Step 2

Click the “Settings” button and select “Settings” on the drop-down menu to load your email settings screen. The Settings icon resembles a mechanical gear or cog.

Step 3

Select “Security” to load the security settings screen.

Step 4

Click the “Show Images in Emails” drop-down menu and select “Always, except in Spam folder” to unblock images in the body of your Yahoo mail messages.

Step 5

Click “Save” to save your changes.
