Email image filtering properties

Use email image filtering properties to control how inbound email images are handled as attachments to and displayed in the activity formatter of target records.

By default, the system handles inbound email images, such as logos or email signatures, as attachments to inbound matched target records. These images are also visible in the activity formatter of the target records. But with each email reply, the system replicates these images, which can cause duplicate image attachments to the target record and also duplicate images in the activity formatter.

To filter images from emails and reduce duplicate image attachments to target records, configure the following properties in the sys_properties.list table. Use these properties to:
  • Specify the email image sizes eligible for filtering.
  • Choose an action that controls image attachment behavior and image visibility in the activity formatter.
Note: These properties do not delete attachments. You can verify attachment records in the Attachments [sys_attachment.list] table.
