I agree with Ricardo's view. You really don't need https or http to
read them. However, the html messages might try to load remote
content and, obviously, these are served via https or http. As
everyone knows, remote content makes html messages a potential
security risk, etc. Not loading remote content does not stop you from
reading html messages, except perhaps the very worst examples where
everything is remote.
