I would like to prevent remote content to load by default, so I have not checked `Privacy -> Mail Content -> Allow remote content in messages`. To the right of that option, there is a button for `Exceptions` to this rule, allowing for whitelisting and blacklisting specific sites or email addresses.

I would like to whitelist all email addresses from my university, but could not find out a way to do this. I tried

Code: Select all
    *@university.ca
    .*@university.ca
    @university.ca


Is it possible to define wildcards for this setting? Or is there another way of blocking remote content in general, but allowing it for all addresses from my university?

http://kb.mozillazine.org/Privacy_basics_-_Thunderbird explains how to use the Config editor to create a mail.trusteddomains setting that specifies what e-mail domains it should automatically display remote images for. That provides the equivalent of using wild cards in exceptions, though it only supports whitelisting.
