How to set an organization wide setting to automatically download pictures from a trusted sender.

Copper Contributor

Good afternoon. I am reaching out to this community to get suggestions on how to automatically download pictures/images from one specific and trusted external sender/domain.  I suspect this will likely be through powershell. If it is, I would like to know the cmdlet name and syntax. 


Configuring a GPO policy on all Outlook clients in one option but will take at least one week for internal review, approval, testing and another three weeks (minimum) for full deployment. 


I am already receiving push-back from the business users after suggesting the following two options: 

  1. Manually add the %external% email address into their SafeSender list in Outlook.
  2. Manually uncheck the "Do Not" setting in the Automatic Download option if they want to download pictures as standard HTML.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thank you!
