How can I disable email trackers? Is using ublock enough? What 3rd party filters do I need to use?

Do I need to do this:

Code: Select all

Hi,

The pixel that tracks open emails should already be blocked by EasyPrivacy.
But to be sure you have to disable automatically loads images in you email settings and email client.

e.g
- GMail https://support.google.com/mail/answer/145919
- Yahoo https://help.yahoo.com/kb/SLN5043.html
- Outlook http://windows.microsoft.com/en-PH/wind ... tive-views

if you have any doubt about an email which still track you provide an example.
