It's configurable... what seems to happen though, is that occasionally my setting resets. Perhaps google updates gmail and it resets some settings like that? I dunno. I don't notice when the setting resets, but Walter does. I agree, I can technically control this, but if the NG really doesn't want the html version of the email, it would be easy for the mailing list to mechanically truncate the html, since that's the default setting for virtually all email clients anyway. Every mailing list user must surely commit this sin?
