Currently, Evolution won't fetch graphics located on remote servers
(as opposed to embedded in the message).

The original reasoning was to prevent spammers from being able to trick
you into giving them an implicit "Read Receipt" (verifying their
address lists are correct and get read).
Technically, the image's URL could include your email address or some
unique ID, and upon getting the image, the spammer's database would be
updated, saying "this mail address is correct, and the person is
reading his/her email".

Anyhow, this seems as a pretty requested feature, and someone said
it'll be implemeneted later, IIRC.

Guys, shouldn't we have a FAQ for those?
