Re: Two questions: HTML and redirection to subfolders

Thank you both for enlightening me with so much useful information. I wonder how many millions out there are not aware of this!

Yes, I would really appreciate that ;-) I tried to do it myself,
but it did not work!

Many thanks.

Yes sorry I was not clear, I meant images within HTML.
I have used thunderbird for a long time and opened
messages (from 'trusted' sources like companies that I
subscribe to their news digests/alerts/etc.)
containing images everyday like those in ad banners
but did not think a lot about security risks. Is the
threat for real or is it just being extra careful on
the part of developers o f e-mail clients that do not
allow for this feature? I may change my mind about
opening images but I just want to make sure that the
threat is real ;-)

OK I failed with this method too :-( No errors, but it
did not direct the messages as deisred so I may give
procmail a go. Where can I start please?!

I hope the documentation was better so I do not need
to ask basic questions here :-( I am using Ubuntu and
the balsa documentation is incomplete. Also, there is
a minor bug in it; it does not contain a section
'(null)' so the help application crashes.
