User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322)
Build Identifier: Version 1.5.0.2 (20060308)

(I am using the german version, so hope you will understand the translation of features).
I am using the function "block loading external graphics" for all emails in the security features. But if I press the button "reply" the graphics are loaded without asking. This is not what should be the expected behaviour of the program.
In my case, there is a well known friend sending his emails through an internet browser, which adds a graphic all the time, which is misused to get my email adress. So even when I reply, I don't want the graphic to be loaded.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.As described above, pressing reply
2.
3.

Actual Results:  
The external graphic is automatically loaded.

Expected Results:  
The graphic should not be loaded or it should be asked whether to load.
