What is this?
MailTrackerBlocker is a plugin for the default Mail app built-in to macOS. Look for the
ⓧ button to see which trackers have been blocked. These trackers can track how often, when and where you open your emails. Disabling "load remote content" should no longer be necessary just to read your emails privately! Blocked Trackers
Zendesk Sell How can I enable this?
Download and run the
.pkg installer from the link above.
".pkg can’t be opened because Apple cannot check it for malicious software." warning appear? Because the plugin isn't signed, you'll have to open and press: System Preferences > Security > General > Open Anyway
Enable the plugin by (see
similar guide for nice pictures):
In Mail, open
Preferences > General > Manage Plug-ins... Check
Apply and Restart Mail
Disabling "load remote content in messages" with MailTrackerBlocker enabled is redundant; enable both for the best experience.
