You really don't need it. Mailscanner will change something that looks like


and turn it into

<img src="http://www.mailscanner.eu/1x1spacer.gif" width="2" height="2"
alt="Web Bug from

At worst, when the user views the mail and
http://www.mailscanner.eu/1x1spacer.gif cannot be retrieved, the user
may see the alt=text, but in many cases, the user's MUA won't load
remote images by default and the user sees nothing.
