Uhh, ok...

But why not just turn off image viewing in your mail client? Or better yet, find a mail client that gives you the option of always displaying plain text? Very seldom do I get legitimate mail in html, and when I do it's easy enough with PowerMail to click the button loading it into Safari. Meanwhile it never loads images in mail unless I ask it too, and Mail.app has the same function minus the plaintext display. Seems like an awful lot of trouble to work around a poorly designed or configured mail client.

I agree, I always have html disabled in mail.app. What I don't like is that I haven't found an easy way of re-enabling it for a specific message for that once in a lifetime legitimate html email.

I wish it had a contextual menu, instead of me having to dig through the prefs, enable it for all, read message, then disable again. I guess I'll have to come up (see if it's possible) with an applescript like another commenter suggested.

I never said that I was using Mail.app (although I am ;)). It's more of a generic hint. And yes, probably disabling all connections would be cleaner but this works too.
