In general, I simply do _not_ read "fancy emails".    Alpine 2.00 here.
I *browse* with a browser -- nothing more.

html in email seems to be all about eye candy -- not content.
I don't waste time looking for the 'content' in an email where it 
appears more effort was applied to the dancing elephants and 
flying pigs than was put into the message.
