"*Control fetching of \"X-Image-URL:\" header field image.
If set to \"Always Fetch\", the image is always fetched. You probably want to
avoid this setting for privacy and denial of service reasons. For example,
fetching a URL can tip off a spammer that you've read his email. Someone may
also flood your network and fill your disk drive by sending a torrent of
messages, each specifying a unique URL to a very large file.
Ths option controls the fetching of the \"X-Image-URL:\" header field image
with the following values:
If set to \"Ask Before Fetching\", you are prompted before the image is
fetched. MH-E will remember your reply and will either use the cached image
the next time the same URL is encountered or silently skip it if you didn't
fetch it the first time. This is the default.
Ask Before Fetching
You are prompted before the image is fetched. MH-E will remember
your reply and will either use the already fetched image the next
time the same URL is encountered or silently skip it if you didn't
fetch it the first time. This is a good setting.
If set to \"Never Fetch\", images are never fetched and only displayed if they
are already present in the cache.
Never Fetch
Images are never fetched and only displayed if they are already
present in the cache. This is the default.
There isn't a value of \"Always Fetch\" for privacy and DOS (denial of
service) reasons. For example, fetching a URL can tip off a spammer that
you've read his email (which is why you shouldn't blindly answer yes if you've
set this option to \"Ask Before Fetching\"). Someone may also flood your
network and fill your disk drive by sending a torrent of messages, each
specifying a unique URL to a very large file.
The cache of images is found in the directory \".mhe-x-image-cache\" within
your MH directory. To see how you can add your own face to the \"From:\"
field, see the option `mh-x-face-file'.
