[Spambayes] graphics stripped out of non-spam HTML messages after installing Spambayes

Thanks for your reply, Tony. 

The thing is, graphics/pics in HTML e-mails were displaying perfectly
well in my Outlook until I enabled Spambayes. So naturally I assumed it
was Spambayes stripping them out. 

I've since disabled Spambayes but the graphics/pics haven't returned.
I'll now dive the depths of Outlook to see what may have been changed.

SpamBayes doesn't change the content of mail at all, it just looks at  
it and moves it to the appropriate folder.   To confirm this, disable  
or uninstall SpamBayes (this will not effect your training/ 
configuration data) and you'll find that the problem still exists  
(and then you can reinstall SpamBayes).

If by "stripped out", you mean that they are not displayed, then this  
is a feature of Outlook.  Somewhere in the depths of Outlook's  
configuration dialogs, you'll find an option to disable it.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
