render it in plaintext no matter what you do. It has
no such "render in plaintext" mode, nor, even, if the
mail is multipart/alternative, will it let you prefer
the plaintext over the HTML. Such is life with an app
meant for the masses and not for real customization.
You can cycle through the alternatives (see View->Show
menu), but it will always revert to showing the HTML
next time you select another message.
Nevertheless, yes, you can turn off rendering of _external_
IMGs (not _inline_ ones).
And if you want to see the full, raw source of an e-mail,
also through the View menu. View->Show->Raw Source
Do that, select the entirety of it and viola - there you go.
Plain Bread alone for e-mail, thanks. The rest gets trashed.
