View Images in Mutt
My favorite email application is mutt. This is because of all the features mutt is offering. But since I receive regularly pictures via email and mutt can’t display them I was looking for an alternative. During the last weeks I found a way to display Pictures inside of mutt without the need of opening an extra window with the help of w3mimgdisplay, the picture-viewer of mutt.
Set up to display images
First you need an w3m-Installation which is enabled to show pictures. All big distributions should offer one: “` aptitude install w3m-img ”’ Now you need an script that calls w3mimgdisplay.

This script determines first the height and width of the running terminal. I’m using mutt with side-bar patch, so the script places the Image right of the bar.
After this you will need to add this script to your mailcap.
