luckily (?) i kept an old LinkedIn email and it doesn't establish
network connections when read, unlike the other one mentioned earlier;
(checked with Wireshark too, there were no DNS address resolution calls

however its header says the content is "multipart" rather than
"text/html" and my guess is the renderer handles it better

Content-Type: multipart/alternative;  

yes, i might have a closer look at this, but not now (Easter, meeting
people etc)

Rgds, Bernardo

 didn't know about 'ngrep', looks interesting, will check that too,
