Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Well unless you mean version, the thread title tells us that the client is Evolution.
One of the security measures that I believe is a default setting is that images that are not embedded in the email are not rendered. So if you have a HTML email that references an image on a webserver some where, then you wont see it. That setting can be changed but I would NOT recommend it.
External images are one of the ways that spammers use to track the effectiveness of their email campaign actually getting opened. Please deny them this information by not rendering external images.
Now if you are talking about image attachments that you are expecting to be there (eg. family photos from a family member) then that is a different issue.
Its evolution 2.2.3 on fc4. The images are simply jpeg's on html emails. I use them frequently as part of my job. One day they will open and the next they will not. I'm not really concerned about the security issue. The emails are well filtered before they even reach me. Even from the same sender they are inconsistantly opening. Sound like a bug ?
I use a jpeg in my signature file (company logo) and it works fine for my outgoing mail, but if someone quotes my email in their response, or forwards the mail then the signature logo does not display because the jpeg is no longer embedded in the email.
Is your problem with original emails or with reply and/or forwarded email?
In Tools -> Settings -> Mail Preferences ->HTML Email
Set your Loading Images to "permitted from Senders in your Address book". That should still protect you from the spammers. I don't know if you have to have the Senders URL in their address book entry or if it works simply from their email address.
