Neat. Pretty useless for people who read mail with
mutt/elm/pine/mh/whateverthehell, and don't want to be bothered saving and
then viewing images.
I always find that a tiny CGI on your webserver, which when hit issues a 302
redirect to a mailto: link works a treat. That way, console/ssh nerds can just
curl the URI to see the mail address.
