Evolution and HTML emails

Hey, just have a question about GUI mail clients .. How can I view emails that are in html format and have images in them? like i recieve Penguin Shell from but I cannot see the images in the html files, or in any other newsletters or other emails I recieve. If anyone could help I'd greatly appreciate it.

Also, I use the Midnight Theme for Enlightenment, I really like it. But with evolution it makes it hard to read the mail, is there anyway I can change evolutions mail background color without having to change themes? Thanks.

I am not sure about evolutions defaulr background styles, but if you want to view the images in evolution html based emails, go into the preferences and select that you prefer html to plain text and to always download images from html files. I am not sure of the exact wording as it has been a long time since I have used evolution, but it is in there.
