This seems to be triggered by SeaMonkey's tracking protection:

Un-tick "Prevent tracking activities by known sites"
This is probably triggered because the image URLs are of the form, for
The long strings seemingly random characters can be (and probably are)
used by mailchimp.com to detect who has opened the emails. By using
different random strings in each copy of the email, they know that when
that particular URL is loaded you must have opened the email. Not that
that necessarily concerns you, but that's probably why SeaMonkey is
blocking the images.
Note that in "Private Browsing" mode, it appear tracking protection is
always active regardless of the above preference.
