Before I discovered sort, I did a search.
The test message was not in the result, but should have been.
Having done the seach, I can't seem to get out of it.
All I can see of my Inbox is the search result.
Quitting and restarting does not help.
How do I see the rest of my messages?
Why can't I refresh?

You don't say, but can we just check that you have cleared the search by
pressing the yellow brush (I think it's supposed to be??) icon at the
right hand end of the search box?

I have now.

In general it is thought to be a "bad thing" to load all images in every
message - many spam mailers use these net images to monitor and harvest
addresses that are live: a small single pixel gif with a unique name
will immediately tell a spammer that the message that contained it was
delivered and read and hence went to a live address. This is just one of
the many ways images in emails can be used in naughty way - there are
many others.

In this case, the messages are from a son-to-be-defunct source from
which such problems have been deleted.

Also, thanks for giving the information along with the don't-do-that.
