I agree, Jon. I noticed that Mozilla (full) and Thunderbird have a
feature which only allows images from the mail host to be viewed (thus
blocking the "new" form of email address validation for spamming
purposes). I definitely enable that. Not too sure how this could be
easily done on other clients, though.
