I subscribe to several email discussion forums. I want to see all images for all emails coming through a forum. I do not want to add each sender's address to my address book. There's too many senders. I don't want to garbage-up my address book. Can you please add image download capability to folder properties? Thanks

This would defeat the purpose of the blocking. Blocking is done to protect your privacy. If we allowed a mailing list to do that , people that want to spam you and know about you, would just need to spam the mailinglist and or forge their email headers to make TB believe that the email comes from a mailing list.

WONTFIX.

Ludovic, it's all about options. Having additional options is always nice. The email discussion forums I participate in are semi-moderated. I don't get spam through them. For forums that are high volume it would be nice not to have to allow content each time. I don't want to fill up my address book with all the participant's addresses. A Thunderbird user would normally enable content based on email address, yes, but it would be nice to be able to show all content that comes into a folder if a person chooses. I put it back to unconfirmed if you don't mind. Thanks

Code complexity - testing and maintenance cost would overweight the benefit of the few users that would use the feature hence my initial won't fix.

I don't think it would be that hard. There's already boolean property values for folders with associated check boxes. It would just be one more check box. I will change status to resolved to reduce the number of open items. Thanks for considering.
