Unblock Picture Downloads For All Messages:

Using Exchange mail flow rules to allow specific senders
To ensure that our emails are allowed into your organisation the mail flow rule should match the following.
The action on the rule must follow this pattern:
Set the spam confidence level (SCL) to -1 (bypass spam filtering).
Add an X-Header to say what the rule does. In the example below, you can add a simple header
X-ETR: Bypass spam filtering for authenticated sender 'contoso.com'. If you have more than one domain in this rule, you can change the header text as appropriate. When a message skips filtering due to a mail flow rule, it stamps SFV:SKN in the X-Forefront-Antispam-Report header (if it's on an IP Allow list, it also stamps IPV:CAL). This will assist with troubleshooting.
The domains that you need to add will vary depending on the templates you're using. If you do not have the full list of domains, please request these from us.
