This is a good solution, but requires spending $$$ on ZoneAlarm.
(Unless I'm mistaken, the free version of ZoneAlarm doesn't have enough
control over the firewall to able to do this).
For a free (but less useful) solution, tell OE to view messages in plain
text. It won't fetch images, but also will not render simple HTML, so
some messages will become garbled.
A more functional free solution is to switch from OE to Mozilla (or
Thunderbird). It can be configured to render HTML but not fetch images.
I do not work for Spamcop, I did not write pflogsumm,
and I never wrote for PC Magazine.
