Is it possible to configure Lotus Notes to not show images in emails? Some external image links contain tracking data and I'd rather not let spammers know I've got their messages.

Disclaimer: I'm not a Lotus Notes user. I found this workaround here:

You can block these external images from loading by editing your current location document (bottom right of your screen, select Edit Current...) and specifying a proxy server of 0.0.0.0:80.

This tells Notes to use a non-existent proxy server to load the images.

Edit: which version are you using? Version 8 seems to implement this feature:
