there is a theory that if you do not download the graphics contained in an email, there is less chance of your falling victim to spam.
This is based on a spammer shooting out thousands of emails which contain graphics. By opening the email, the graphics are called from a site that is monitored by the spammer. The fact that firstname.lastname@example.org downloaded the graphics indicates that the address used is a valid, active, address. The fetch more on the market.
Go to the preferences in Entourage and you will find a check box that prevents/allows the downloading of graphics contained in an email.
Just as a matter of interest, as a new switcher why did you choose Entourage as your email client?
I just recently bought a mackbook pro, and i am using entourage for my email apllication, and when an email comes through with pictures in it, for an example when i get an email from cnet, it always wants me to click the download pictures to show the pictures in the email. When I used microsoft outlook for windows there was a setting to automaticlly download pictures in an email. i was just wondering if there was away to do that for Entourage. Macs, and mac software are a new thing for me, and i dont know alot about them yet.
thanks in advance for any help
