    How to Hide or Show Sender Pictures in Windows 10 Mail App

    information   Information
    Windows 10 comes with a new Mail app. The new Mail app brings improved performance and a familiar three-pane email UI, with a toggle to quickly move between your email and calendar. Mail includes customizable Swipe Gestures, letting you swipe right or left to take actions like delete, flag, move or mark as read/unread. Also check out the new email authoring experience. Mail leverages the familiar and rich capability of Word to that allows you to easily insert tables, add pictures and use bullets and color to your text. The Mail app supports Office 365, Exchange, Outlook.com, Gmail, Yahoo!, IMAP, POP and other popular accounts.

    By default, the Mail app will show the sender pictures in the message list to help make it easier to see who the email messages are from.

    Microsoft has quietly added a setting to turn on or off to show sender pictures in the message list in a new update of the Mail and Calendar app (version 17.8018.42367.0).

    This tutorial will show you how to hide or show sender pictures in the message list of the Mail app for your account in Windows 10.

    4. When finished, you can close the Mail app if you like.


    That's it,

    Do you have to be using an Insider build of Windows 10 to be able to see this? Or will it be rolled out independently of that?

    Hello Mark,

    Check to see what version of the Mail app you have installed (Settings -> About in Mail app). This feature should be available starting with version 17.8018.42367.0.

    I'm now on version 17.8016.42007.0 on my desktop and on a tablet, and I don't see that option on either of them.

    It looks like you don't have the 17.8018.42367.0 version available yet for your Windows 10.
