Yes, the "Fail all URLs with the same failed host" feature it should
fail all mailto URLs, but it doesn't, because from the way it is
programmed it works only for http and ftp URLs. I'll change the text in

- Is there a way to get Xenu to check the image files that in use on the
site against a list found either locally or via FTP.

And, to be careful, if you delete something, ask the shop owner first
if, from his memory, these images are indeed no longer used for any
