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.
