Thunderbird already sanitizes HTML mail if it's marked as spam, but it could do
one better by sanitizing (assuming this means blocking javascript and HTML
images and webbugs) all HTML mail by default, and then giving the user the
option to unblock the images if they want on a case-by-case or permanent basis.
 Outlook 2003 has a function similar to this, whereas a mail message with images
does not load the images until the user clicks on a small bit of text that says
"Click here to download images.  Outlook prevented automatic download of images
in this message."  The menu this message offered gives offers to download the
images, change this setting, or add the sender or domain to a whitelist.

A similar feature can be put into Thunderbird by adding a small message (much
like the "Thunderbird thinks this message is junk mail" now) that reflects this
and a button that says "Load Images" and a "?" for help.
