The problem with turning off images in mail & newsgroups is that you can't ever get them back. I get a few emails that need to display images (for instance, from Comics.com). If I set that setting, then I can't see them!

I leave that setting turned off, but use the View|Message Body As option to toggle between "Simple HTML" and "Original HTML" (I wish there were a button for this). I leave it on "Simple HTML", which displays HTML but doesn't go and fetch anything. When I read my Comics messages, I switch it to "Original HTML", read the messages, and then switch it back.
