I've attached an image which shows that WinXP SP2 is going to have a feature
which I've been wanting in Mozilla for a long time. And it seems OE has done
this in a simple and cleaver way.

Currently in my Mozilla preferences under Privacy and Security -> Images
I set mozilla to not load remote images in email. This is to protect from
spammers verifying my email address. I'm sure many users do this as well.

However I do receive some newsletters that are written in html from trusted
sources that have many remote images. When those newsletters arrive in my inbox
I am not able to view the remote images in the html, unless I change my security
setting then load the html email again, which is too much of a hassle.

It would be great if we had a button/link similar to that in OE so that for a
specific email I can have the images that were blocked loaded. There isn't a
need to have Mozilla remember that I clicked the show images link. For example
if I click to view another email then click back to the email with remote
images, it's okay for me to have to click the button/link to have the images
load again. I state this because I assume it's easier to implement when nothing
has to be remembered.

From an evangelistic point of view, wouldn't it be great if this enhancement
landed before WinXP SP2, so that MozillaMail was never without a feature that OE
has. :-)
