Re: emacs-w3m


I've added the new user option.  Here is the info item:

     Some HTML mails might have the trick of spammers using `<img>'
     tags.  It is likely to be intended to verify whether you have read
     the mail.  You can prevent your personal informations from leaking
     by setting this option to `nil' (which is the default).  It is
     currently ignored by Emacs/w3.  For emacs-w3m, you may use the
     command `t' on the image anchor to show an image even if it is

Please let me know if you have better solutions than this.
