User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20041001 Firefox/0.10.1 Build Identifier: Thunderbird version 0.9 (20041103) When a message that has remote images is forwarded as an attachment, the resulting message when viewed loads the remote images for the inline representation of the attached message, regardless of the setting to block loading of remote images in mail messages. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Forward an email containing remote images to yourself as an attachment. 2. View the resulting email when it arrives. Actual Results: The remote images are loaded and displayed in the inline representation of the attached message. Expected Results: The remote images should have been blocked according to the security setting and the same option to load remote images should be provided if images are blocked.
Created attachment 168507 [details] Msg w/ attached message w/ <img> w/ remote href I am unable to reproduce this problem. This attachment is a (text/html) email message with a message/rfc822 attachment. That attachment is also a text/html message, with an <img> tag pointing to a remote image. When I load this message up in Thunderbird, the image is blocked until I click the Show Images button.
Bug 263345 is, if not duplicate, at least very related to this one.
(In reply to comment #2) > Bug 263345 is, if not duplicate, at least very related to this one. Possibly. Gordon Tyler, are the images actually included in the forwarded messages, or are they still being referenced remotely? Per that bug, remote images are loaded into the compose window during reply/forward operations; in that case, they are sent on as parts (attachments) rather than remote images and so will not be blocked by the receiver. Is that what you're seeing?
(In reply to comment #3) > Possibly. Gordon Tyler, are the images actually included in the forwarded > messages, or are they still being referenced remotely? I just tested it again. I have an email from Apple's iTunes store which is about 56K and has remote images (I doubled checked the source). I forwarded it to myself as an attachment and when the forwarded message arrived, the images loaded as soon as I opened the message. The forwarded message is also about 56K and does not contain embedded images -- they are still be loaded remotely. Note that I am forwarding the message as an attachment, not inline. So the composer only deals with the message as an attachment, not as inline HTML with images.
I forgot to mention that I've reproduced the bug with Thunderbird 1.0 build 20041206.
Have you set the preference under Options | Advanced for  Allow remote images if the sender is in [address book] ? And do you have a card in your address book for yourself?

Aha, yes, that was it. Once I turned off that option, the images didn't load. Sorry for the bother.
