First of all it's a long standing unwritten rule of listserves that you 
should only post plain text email messages.
Also don't be sorry for causing inconvenience just stop causing that 
inconvenience in the first place. It's much easier for you send your email 
as plain text then for everybody else to switch their email readers. 
Exactly what do you get out of send out HTML email in the first place?

IMAP has nothing to do with it. And once again why should we have to write 
scripts or switch our favorite email clients just because you are too lazy 
click one button and turn off HTML email.


Don't be sorry just turn it off.
