In Mozilla, you can disable external Graphics in Mail/NG messages via the
security menu.
This is a good thing, given that most of the graphics in eMail now are SPAM.
However, some mails contain graphics that you really want to view, eg. "Daily
Dilbert".

1) It would be helpful if I can specify in every account if it takes the
settings from the Security menu, or overrides them and displays/doesn't display
graphics nevertheless.
This would be a workaround so one can just divert mails with desired graphics to
other Graphics-enabled accounts

2) Even better would be if one can look at a mail and then by right-clicking can
decide if a graphic should be displayes / all graphics from a server should be
displayed. In that scenario, graphics not displayed should show up as an icon.

I don't routinely get any messages with images, so I can't try this, but maybe
if you go to one of those images, view it in a browser window, right click ->
block images... and /then/ right click -> unblock..., and see if that works. Not
intuitive at all, but that's what I had to do in the browser, and if it works in
mail too then the backend's already there and all we have to do is make it
easier to do.
