I speak for myself, but you seemed eager to bring your authority into it, with giving your length of experience using Mutt. If you want to do that, then I'm happy to point out that in the 23+ years *I've* been a member of the Mutt community, frequent poster, and occasional code contributor here, I've seen lots and lots and lots of people asking about how (better) to handle HTML mail. If you want to know who they are, feel free to search the archives. Mutt is a mail user agent, and like it or not, a large amount of mail is now sent in HTML format. Isn't the MUA's job to handle e-mail? Well, I think it is, and Mutt does not do a complete job of it, for a large subset of e-mail messages. This thread has highlighted that lots of people have issues dealing with the available solutions. They all "work" to some degree, but they often have failings that simply can't be overcome, or require a very specific set of tools that may not even be available to you, if you are reading mail on a system you do not manage. If Mutt handled HTML mail natively in some fashion, these issues would cease to be issues. That's exactly why I think support very much belongs in Mutt proper. -- Derek D.
