This assumes that a non-webmail client loads external images. Kmail doesn't, 
unless you tell it to. By default it shows the plain text version of an 
email; if there isn't one, it shows HTML code. If you have an HTML-only 
message and want to see external images, you have to click once to render the 
email as HTML, then once to see the external images.
