turns out that was my misunderstanding of how things work; just reopened
that message again and inspected the article in raw format which shows
it's a multipart message (txt/html); when the html part was rendered the
1st time around i (wrongly) assumed the whole page was fetched from the
location pointed to by the URL (the URL was only visible in the
"filtered" mode);

on closer inspection the HTML part does contain pointers to the dreaded
1 pixel images and i'll be re-reading your finding about (whatever they
are called) variables controlling image loading

my apologies for the confusion
