Sorry - this is the analysis from Mailwatch:

Spam Report:	
Score	Matching Rule 
4	required	 

As you can see, it was almost trapped. Of course I could always up the
scores for SARE_GIF_ATTACH and HTML_IMAGE_ONLY_16, but I think an
additional rule for side-by-side gifs might be a better approach? I'm
not sure what the best score might be for such a rule - but something
around the 1.0 mark would probably be appropriate.
