YES IT DOES WORK
YOU JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND IT.

The www4mail ximage option will not send you any images directly. This is
because some images in a page may just be there to separate portions of
the page e.g an image named line.gif could produce a short line.

It will only allow links (Selection points) for images to
appear in a web page sent to you. This way you can select all the images
that you are interested in.

www4mail will try to label these links by the names of the images or
suggested text from the WEB server. This way you can click or request for
image1.gif or myphoto.gif and not line.gif (which was just used to
rule the page).

Note XIMAGE will appear not work if the page does not contain any images
or the WEB server determines that we are a text mode browser and does not
send us a page with images. 
XIMAGE will not work with GET or SEND commands which do a text dump of
the web page. It also will not work with TSOURCE or SOURCE, which send
you the unmodified HTML source code.

It only works when used with XGET or XSOURCE. In fact it only works when
used with web browser interface where by you can select in your next
e-mail, the images that you would like.


Thanks
