Unexpected external reference blocked warning message

Reported by Eric Sharakan | January 9th, 2018 @ 04:59 PM

Hi, I have a custom keybinding that sets the \Deleted IMAP keyword (along with others to undelete, expunge, etc, as I like to use IMAP the way it was intended, by deleting messages in place without moving them to some trash folder).

This all works great, but I sometimes see an odd phenomenon: I have a message with external images which are displaying just fine. I hit my "d" key to apply the \Deleted IMAP tag, and a warning pops up, saying "Blocked 1 external reference. The message is marked as Not Junk", with options to "Load Once" and "Move to Junk".

I have the "Unless messages are marked explicitly as Not Junk" option set in my Image Blocking preferences, the SpamSieve score is always low (like 1), and my SpamSieve threshold for marking messages as not junk is set to 50.

    This is because images are always blocked for junked/deleted messages. I guess a message not in “Deleted Messages” and marked as both \Deleted and $NotJunk should be excluded from this rule. I'll look into that.

    Hi Benny, just a note to thank you for your rapid responses to all the issues I reported in a rapid-fire way yesterday. As you can guess, I've been evaluating MailMate for a little while, as a potential replacement for Apple's Mail.app. I love the different ways you allow for customization, especially as I'm coming from running Mail.app with the MailTags & MailActOn plugins, which I relied on heavily.

    As an aside, it's sad to see that Apple's SW quality is not what it used to be, and Mail.app currently suffers from a plethora of issues, some of which I had reported to Apple years ago, yet they still exist today. If it wasn't for my reliance from the MT & MAO plugins from Scott Morrison, I would have ditched Mail.app long ago.

    Anyway, I have found that I can reproduce or mimic most of the functionality of those great plugins in MailMate. Couple this with an active, responsive developer (full disclosure: I'm a SW developer myself) and I'm sold! I'll be purchasing MM shortly. :-)

    Thanks for letting me know. Unfortunately, MailMate also has its considerable share of very old unresolved issues or unimplemented features :)

    Hah, all sizable SW projects do! You're never done, and there's always more bugs to chase. I feel your pain. :-)

    On the flip side, it's job security!

    Hi Benny, it seems like this issue has reappeared; I'm seeing it again in version 1.11 (5466)

    Are you sure? Images are blocked for an email which is not in Deleted Messages (or Junk) with \Deleted and $NotJunk enabled?

    Argh, the offending message got expunged. I think it was one that had not yet been evaluated by SpamSieve so I'm not sure it was marked as NotJunk. Could that explain it?

    Yes, anything with any kind of deleted state (mailbox or flag) has image blocking enabled except for the combination of \Deleted and $NotJunk.

    Oh okay, in that case, never mind. :-)
