The HTML mail compse attaches images when the UI refers to this action via the "link" icon. I understand the reasoning -- it makes sens if the link were a file:// URI but http:// references should be taken as simple <IMG ...> links and the content not attached bloating the mail paylode. Sounds like a new pref is in order so that it mimics the HTML page composer behavior. Making people have to context switch is asking for trouble. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose HTML mail 2. Type "This is a link to an image." in the message body. 3. Highlight the word "link" and select "Link/Image" from the toolbar. 4. Use the test URL as a reference. 5. Send the mail. 6. THe image is *attached* to the mail payload. Actual Results: Mail bloat. Expected Results: Done that "really cool internet http thing" and refered to the image like 99.999% of HTML pages in the world do. I'm not bitter.
