"Load remote images" for ellipsis

In the last couple betas (currently at v426), I see the "Load remote images from this user" banner appearing much more frequently. When I look at the message source, I don't see any tags. If I click "Once", what appears is the little ellipsis image that Airmail uses to indicate that if has collapsed quoted text. It seems as though that may be the image triggering the banner rather than content in the message itself. If so, maybe it'd be good to whitelist it automatically? It's really not the kind of security/tracking risk the banner is intended to address, I think.

    Looks like it's still occurring v430. It seems to occur for both plain text or html messages - any chance it's being triggered by some element of Airmail "chrome"?

    Still present in v431. One additional observation: hyperlinks in HTML content are presented as the typical blue text, but until I click to load remote images, clicking on the hyperlink text does nothing. After the load images step, clicking a hyperlink forwards to the browser.

    Hey Amazing Airmail’ers! This is still happening on 3.3.3 (456). Namely, when Autoload Remote Images is unticked, the Load remote images… banner is displayed on the message view even when the email contains no images.

    Thanks for all you do.
