Hi Alan,

Thank you for this new extension: vtiger-tb3-0.1.3.xpi

I have tested in Windows XP environment - VTiger is in the shared Apache 
server and found the following:

Copying HTML emails with externally linked images works fine into Vtiger 
Lead table.

Copying HTML emails with inline images works fine into Vtiger Lead table 
also. The image was not copied as it you said.

Copying HTML emails with externally linked images works into Vtiger 
Contact table with the following limitation:

If the Contact hasn't related Account the TB extension give an error:
Unknown Error while processing request"

If the Contact has related Account the copying works fine.

If I could suggest I suggest to remove this limitation. If the user is 
in the B2C business model this limitation will frustrate him.

It was working with active and passive message pane also on Windows
