I didn't want to give the MIA team extra work for a false negative.

By default, it tries to convert each feed item to text (using a script 
that could be packaged separately I think…). But you can put
"HTML_MAIL = 1" in ~/.rss2email/config.py to disable this conversion.

So, if you only have links I believe that the feed you are viewing 
does not have inline content. We can talk about that off-list or in
the BTS if you want :-)
