I found a picture of yours
it has the extra section in the middle called 'Block images and other
external content in html mail" The article which discusses it is here

Except that that particular up-to-date-ness involves XP, and MS and I
got a divorce about that time. I decided that my upgrade path after
98se was going to be Linux, unless I could find a really good deal on
W2K. That is, my upgrade was going to be linux in any case, but that I
was willing to spend a very little time or money on 2K, but not XP.
That deal hasn't yet come along.
I refuse to pay the MS tax just to buy new hardware any more, and
fortunately you don't usually have to do that anymore. Dell is holding
out, but I can usually beat their deals if I shop long enough. Well,
Dell sells MS-less hardware, but they never make any real good deals on
it like they do their MS ware. Very strange how that works. Like the
fix is in between MS & Dell. There oughta be a law of some kind or
another -- it isn't just 'business' when the collusion between the
bid'ness men becomes unfair practices.
