This is a privacy option!

Hello Kirk

This setting is a privacy option and the bandwidth saving is just a nice side effect. As I understand, it does disable the loading of remote images in HTML e-mail (if they are not sent with the e-mail itself), which is a good thing anyway. If you allow the loading of such remote images, then this is used to track you if and when you are reading the message. The remote images are loaded through an URL (link) with an unique ID directly from the website of the entity sending you the e-mail.

bye
Fabian
