Is it really "Responsive"?

I just started looking into designing HTML emails using tables (I despise tables, is there a better solution?) and I was researching responsive design, in normal web design, using an image in responsive page would simply grow and shrink as needed, but with email, I read that simply using various sizes of each image that loads depending on screen size. So, is that actually considered "Responsive"? Is that technically correct?

Unlike most Web browsers, email clients have not yet united in support of HTML email standards, resulting in poor CSS support for email.
Techniques For Overcoming Poor CSS Support In Email

You might want to read through Email Standards Project as well.

Many designers who started web design in the last few years have never even coded a table based layout, which is a good thing. The current email environment means a designer not familiar with the table based approach will need to learn a completely different way of creating a page if they want to send HTML emails. Let’s not go back to those days.

Catching up on my RSS feed reading found this: Responsive Email Design Guide: How-To, Examples, Tips & More

Using a flexible table design might be easier than making 12+ stylesheets.

Responsive email template is something I havn't heard till date. For an image to grow and shrink, the width of the image should be set as 100% in css. else it wont grow and shrink. And I am not sure / tried this in emails.
