This is a email client problem, not a email problem. Just disable images in your client, or anything that automaticly loads for that matter.

On Android, I use an app called fairemail which blocks tracking pixel by default. It’s also just very good in general.

The world is fucked. Anyway, I always tell my email client to not load html elements.
