    #1 by default contacts spam servers. How can I stop this?

    This is what I mean: displays spam mail (not detected as junk). I open the email which contains the spam email and image. contacts the server and pulls the image automatically.

    I realised that these are usually custom image URLs which contain an identifier for my email address. So now they know I exist, damn!!

    I only found this out because I installed a third party firewall on my macbook. And started to contact the spam servers for images.

    How can I stop all images and html in a message from being loaded automatically?

    Mail Preferences -> Viewing -> Display remote images in HTML messages

    That should relieve the problem. If you get an email you want to see the images in, there will be a button at the top of the message you can click once to see all of the associated images.
