I'll send you the test email off the ML.

The web site gives as explanation

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
Test - SVG inline with remote image

In the <body> of the HTML part, place a tag as follows:

<svg version="1.1" baseProfile="full" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg";
        <image xlink:href="http://TRACKING_URL/"/>
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---

I would conclude, that the <image ... /> link does not point to an
image, but just an arbitrary URL which is used for tracking. Likely,
images shall not be loaded by default in shr. At least there shall be an
option which prevents this, when shr is used for rendering email in gnus.

Best regards, Michael.
