Outlook - privacy settings

When I open some emails with Outlook, I get this message:

Outlook popup
I'm assuming that its loading the email from the sender, and thereby telling them that I've clicked on it.
Is that correct?

If so, is there a setting in Outlook to stop the sender from knowing that I've opended the email?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This message is present when you downlaod images or attachemtns that are within the email. This is normal process and the users is not notified that you have opened or downlaoded the attachments.

But looking at the text of the website being contacted, implied that its some sort of conversion tracker?
It's purely ad tracking. There is no conversion going on, just an update of a counter within Google Ads. An image or something was loaded, but not clicked on.
