Not necessarily...

While I'd like to think Apple was smart enough to catch this, I can't confirm it. That woeful piece of virus-spreading gunk, Microsoft Outlook, would still open a message even if the preview pane had been dragged small enough to be invisible; you had to actually turn it off to change it.

Even if Apple didn't fall into that trap, if you happen to drag your preview pane down to 1 pixel, you have the appearence, but not the effect, of safety in this regard. It's much safer to turn off HTML rendering in mail altogether.

Preview Pane

You can turn that preview pane off completely by double-clicking the divider line. Mail.app became better the day I decided to do that. No more rendering HTML emails I only want to delete.

Or use this applescript and YoupiKey (now iKey) or Quickeys or other tool that can run scripts using keyboard shortcut:
tell application "Mail"
set msgViewer to front message viewer
if (the preview pane is visible of msgViewer) is in {true} then
tell msgViewer to set properties to {preview pane is 
visible:false}
else
tell msgViewer to set properties to {preview pane is 
visible:true}
end if
end tell
