On [EMAIL PROTECTED] we ask for plain text. I can't
remember if we set a parameter to insist on that. I know that the
messages I clear are all in plain text. So your statement doesn't
apply in our case at least. I see HTML on a few other lists but those
senders get yelled at.
HTML has no place in email IMO. If the mail is not from one of my
mailing lists or from a designated client I have a filter that sends
HTML bearing mail to a special folder. 98% of such mail is SPAM. I
delete based on subject line.
