Does anyone know how I can disable my email contact images from loading in my Android Gmail app inbox. The email contact's set profile picture loads up with emails I receive from them in my inbox. Only have a few have profile images set but this is still an issue for those few as some set images are not entirely appropriate and potentially a rock of stumbling for me (and probably wife as well).

  • Not as smooth, fast, organised, etc but the FairMail app does handles this issue best compared to the many email apps I tried. The settings is under the Display tab.
  • On previous Gmail app or that running on AndroidGo version, this is done by unchecking 'Sender image' under Settings. For the full Gmail app version, this can only be done for the conversations list view: Go under Settings (Gmail app settings) > Conversation list density > Select 'Compact' This unfortunately does not affect the single conversation view - which negates the whole value of being able to do this for conversations list view. So using FairMail is by far the better way out if you are not on AndroidGo.
