Even though Trustcenter is set to not download images automatically, Outlook keeps popping up with the dreaded "Contacting server for information" box.

To resolve this problem:

1. Open Registry Editor and navigate to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\15.0\Common
2. Right click Common, create new DWORD value called BlockHTTPImages and give it a value of 1
