I think you are seeing a pixel shim. It can be a tiny little thing that is literally one pixel in size, of a particular shade (if it is a gif then it is one of about 200 "web safe" colors). This is all that is needed if someone wants to tile the background of their email (formatting it so there is a color, or if the gif is a little larger, presenting a texture or a look like a spiral binding along the edge, or a parchment backround, etc.)
