Don't get me started about remote content!
Hotels, car rental agencies, even travel agents are notorious for 
sending evil remote content.
It's not prevalent in the business circle I work in, but definitely 
travel services are some of the worst offenders.

I get the almost empty text message (in claws main mail frame), and only 
when I switch to fancy, I see all the information they sent.
And you have no trace of it because if the HTML source goes down, the 
content is lost.
And over time some of the links and images change/disappear and the mail 
starts to dilute.

Really sucks.
