The emails that come from Twitter always come from a seemingly random email address (probably some kind of hash) like mention-fpbgg.ivivna+cxza=tznvy.pbz-b2b51@postmaster.twitter.com

If I click "Always display messages from" it only works for that specific email address. Is it possible to add a wildcard address from which to display images? e.g. everything from @postmaster.twitter.com

Seems it is not possible: google.com/support/forum/p/gmail/… – JMax Feb 23 '12 at 10:23

This isn't possible. For the following reasons:

  • There isn't a way to setup a filter to show images for certain conditions
  • There is no way to see the list of senders you've allowed to display images (which means you can't edit it)
  • You can't assign a label that displays images always within it.

I've wanted this feature as well because it's annoying to have to click it all the time.

Thanks, I guessed as much. – DisgruntledGoat Mar 8 '12 at 10:34

Use an email client like Windows Essentials Mail, Outlook or Mac OS X Mail to access your Gmail via IMAP. These clients have the option you're looking for.
