Like I expected ... there are external images loaded. Only they are not

Well, those were only two, maybe there are more - it is no fun reading
ugly HTML code and therefore I stopped after finding two. So the email

downloaded as well, which is a good thing IMHO. After all spammers use
such external images to verify email addresses. And probably youtube
also verifies with these images that you have read the mail.
