Discovering Notes 8: Automatic loading of images in HTML newsletters

In Notes 8 there is this nice new and improved display of HTML newsletters. An additional nice feature is that images are prevented from loading to combat SPAM bots that harvest e-mail addresses by using dynamic image URLs. See below for a screenshot of how a HTML newsletter looks before images are allowed.

It would however be nice if I could setup a list of e-mail addresses where image loading was enabled by default such as for my favorite HTML newsletters. Well it isn’t available out of the box with Notes 8 but you could easily write it yourself as an agent that processes incoming e-mail.

The agent only needs to set a text field called $DelayedImagesOK to the value “ok” (no quotes) for the e-mails where image loading should be enabled upfront.

Happy Friday!
