Does anyone know of an AppleScript command I can use to tell Mac Mail to load images for a specific email ?

Here's what I need to do. I've turned off loading images by default because of the hundreds of spam I get. But for some trusted senders, I want to be able to see the images. I can always click on the "Load Images" button but was hoping to write a script and then write a Mail Rule that would trigget this script for the trusted senders.

I'm new to AppleScript and looked at the help and known commands but couldn't find one.

Anybody has ideas on how I could do this ?

Are you using the Junk mail box function to sort out some of the junk mail you are getting. If not, turn it on, it works quite pretty well for a free one. Also, you can setup rules for your mail. Like I guess that you can set it up so that all mail with pictures from the person you want comes up but the rest go elsewhere. Rules can be made in the Mail preferences. Mail->Preferences-> Rules (top right) of new window.

Thanks. But I don't think you got the point. This has nothign to do with Junk Mail (and yeah I have that on). I just mentioned it because once in a while a junk emails slips past the filters and I don't want to display images in those.

I was just asking if there's a way to automate the clicking of the Load Images button using a script. Maybe Tiger's Automater will have something for it.

i dont know much about Apple Scripts myself so this wont be of too much help to you, but if you can get a script that basically just says show image, you can do this by using it in conjunction with the rules.....
