Don't download attachments automatically
For privacy and data usage
This is a privacy feature that I appreciate in the Windows app, but miss in the iOS app

Emails are downloaded when we open the email and not at the time of receiving the message.
Ideally it should download email once received.

For the third time I am going to remove Outlook app from my iPhone and every time because of missing some very basic features in the app.
Option to stop automatically downloading images is a MUST and huge security risk, request to my IT to stay away form Outlook is the next step.

Please add in a toggle to allow me to turn off the automatic download of images. Allow me to choose per email if I want to download images.
Guy Rasin commented
Very long time gap between when the email is being pushed to the phone as a notification to opening the app and being able to see the email in the inbox.
My iPhone and iPad native email client is extremely quick, however Outlook is very slow. Speed up the app

I simply won’t use this software until you give me the option to stop automatically downloading images!

At least don’t download images in junk folder.
Installed Outlook for IOS yesterday, uninstalling today.
Too bad. Disabling autoload of remote images is a MUST feature.
Just got a confirmation from Outlook iOS app support, that no option is available to disable automatic download of external content (unlike most other mobile and desktop email clients).
I really like the Outlook app but it is not an option for me, as long as this issue does not get addressed.
Google's gmail app has this feature as do most other mainstream apps. this is a serious security gap. Since the feature is available in your other versions I'm there is some deliberate reason you have left it out, but please put the option back in. This is terrible decision from perspective of user.
User MUST have capability to disable the automatic downloading of images.
This is such a clear security risk that it is hard to understand why this capability does not exist.
Intune Users should have teh capability of disabling the feature at a tenant level.
Not having this capbility represents a significant security concern for our executives and employees. Vendors and/or other bad actors can cyber-stalk users.. A 1 pixel tracking beacons can give read-receipt information and potentially location information. With Email tracking, spam, and the potential download of malicious materials, this is a significant security concern.
Need the ability to deselect attachment download.
Ability to disable all incoming photos so as not to have to view objectionable content when it gets through junk filters.

I can't use the Outlook app without this feature! I can't afford to broadcast every email I open to spammers by having Outlook automatically download the spammer's beacon images every time I open an email. This is a serious security feature that is essential for any email client, and it is a glaring hole in the Outlook app. Please prioritize this higher so people can consider using the Outlook app as a serious email reader. I've been waiting for this fix for over a year while using the built-in iOS reader instead.

Pls include setting to disable automatic loading of remote email content such as images. Spammers love it that your app STILL does not recognize this security flaw.
Outlook for iOS is loading images referenced from junk emails - this is a security risk. Rogue emails can attack the code that decodes and renders the images.
Outlook.com doesn't do this
Outlook for windows doesn't do this
Outlook for macOS doesn't do this
Outlook for iOS should not do this

I would like to have images automatically downloaded in the content.
My iPCam sends an email with six still images when motion is detected. However I need to open these images in Outlook unlike Saprk or other apps.
Desktop Outlook has an option to turn off downloading pictures. App does not. This is a security necessity, since bad chaps use beacons to trick users. Same feature should be available in the app.
Downloading remote content (especially images) automatically is completely unaccepted. I uninstalled the application when I realized that it was missing this feature.
