Chris T asks on Yahoo! Answers:
How do I get mail.app in OS X, to not display attached images automatically, like what it defaultly does for the junk mail, where you have to click “Load Images”, because I get a lot of images spam, and too big images.
Luckily, a plugin called Mail Attachments Iconizer exists precisely to help people who often get too big images.
When it is installed, images and other attachments like PDFs are always displayed as icons.
If you find an image or PDF you would like to view in place, the plugin adds a “View in place” option to the Contextual Menu:
I don’t use it myself as I live in a text-based world, but I know graphic designers who swear by it.
Mail Attachments Iconizer is shareware (USD 6) and is available from the developer’s web site .
