Where do you see that ">" in the Thunderbird address book. When I open it, I see one that's clicked on to show my lists, but that's all it does.

It is the very first entry in my Personal Address Book (the other 2 are called addresses and Collected Addresses) and this Personal Address Book comes up when you select either Contacts when reading/writing an e-mail (as I am doing now) or when you click on Addresses when you are about to write an e-mail.

I have to add here that I do *not* allow anyone's e-mail - only 1 exception, a broadsheet to which I am subscribed - to display remote text so I don't use this entry.

Now that I am having a think about all this, how hard would it be to simply click on the "button" in Thunderbird when it displays "Remote text blocked" or whatever the wording is?

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I don't want to see any porno stuff or other crap showing up on my screen when I receive unsolicited mail. And even though I and my ISP have filters set for spam/junk such crap still manages to get thru. So, personally, I prefer to be allowed to select whose remote text/graphics I can see on my screen rather than go about stopping the text/graphics *AFTER* the event. But then, that's me :-) .
