I suggest you ...

have an option to automatically load images, redesign the inbox page on the website

1. include an option to automatically load images

i don't mind not having images load automatically on my mobile, but when using the tutanota webpage, it's really ugly to see huge triangles exclamation marks with every email. i would like to be able to toggle automatic image loading when using tutanota on my mac.

2. improve the inbox layout (web)

the three columns take up a lot of space, making it very hard to read my emails at a glance, especially when most of them are html and end up as gigantic triangles and exclamation marks (see the first suggestion). i suggest eliminating the first column, maybe changing it to a row instead.

    So very important to be my full-time email reader. I use an RSS reader, but sometimes I need to get regular emails from news sites. Allowing images each time is getting mind-numbing.

    Additional observation: Even after I allow images for some of my financial newsletters, some of the graphs are still NOT SHOWN. I imagine they are hosted on a subdomain or something that you didn't allow...? This is a problem. I can right-click on the blank box and tell my browser to "Show Image" and view it without issue, so the image is ready and waiting to be displayed. Feel free to email me if you need examples.

    If I can add all my newsletters into a specific contact list that displays remote images that would be awesome.

    I agree. I'd like to change my email settings so that all pictures in all emails I receive are automatically shown, instead of getting those black triangle exclamation marks. I understand that there is a minor possibility of having a less secure connection (sharing IP address, etc), but I think this choice should be for the informed user to make.

    Protonmail has done this well. They have 2 settings, one for "Load remote content" auto / manual and another for "Load embedded images" auto / manual. Personally, I find that always have to load the images on my phone so that I can get rid of the sometimes huge triangles and see what's going on! On balance, having to click a 2nd time if I re-open an email seems more like a bug than a security feature. I would pay for premium if this feature and responsive display of HTML emails is introduced.

    Please make a toggle for automatic image loading on/off in settings. I will not pay for premium unless this is done.

    yes, wtf are you waiting for? Do this now. At least before you pressed the button and it showed the images, now with the new beta tutanota, you made it worse, now I have to confirm!!!?? wtf is wrong with you people?

    Please...PLEASE...allow image loading default option. It's a pain to have to load images for every single email.

    It could be considered risky if all images were loaded automatically. Just have an option to allow images from chosen senders to be displayed. Or senders who appear in your address book.

    Loading an email properly once opened is extremely important to business users, there must be an option to load images automatically.
