I have a client complaining that images in his email signature are not showing on his Samsung S3. So I wanted to know if they are either blocked by default or the email client is set to display plaintext emails by default?

It may be setup to not load images by default. Many mail clients are setup like that, for good reasons :) – Izzy Apr 11 '13 at 22:06
Thanks Izzy. I don't suppose you happen to know if the native email app on Samsung S3 does this? – Xav Apr 11 '13 at 23:23
Is he using the email app or the gmail one? I think almost every email app will hide images by default, and usually at the top there will be a button that will enable showing of the images (with gmail, you press a Show Pictures button), and most likely, after pressing that, the client will give you an option to "Always show pictures from this sender" or something similar. – bassmadrigal Apr 12 '13 at 1:18
Thanks bassmadrigal. I believe he's using the email app so yes it would make sense if images don't show by default. So there's nothing I can do about it! – Xav Apr 14 '13 at 14:44
