Good morning Jerry,
Like you I use FreeBSD and Claws-mail and ran into the inability to
render HTML emails.  Using Claws-mail as distributed by FreeBSD, the
functionality of fancy, Dillo, and Litehtml seams to be missing.  I
updated to FreeBSD 12.1 with no improvement.

Where I ended up is compiling Claws-mail from the git repositary.  Both
the Dillo and LiteHTML are now available. Many emails are not rendered
by either. The "open with" feature and an external web browser works.

I asked a question and received 2 replies, both with useful information:
