In short, yes.
When you send in plain text, the message is sent in plain text of
course. When you send in html, the message is sent in html.
If you send in 'both' (plain text and html) there is a plain text
'portion' and a html 'portion' sent. Depending on your email/news
program (and it's settings) you will only usually 'see' one version on
your screen, but both will be there in the message.
Dependent on how much html is used, a plain text message of say 25KB
would perhaps be 30KB to 40KB if sent html. If sent both, then the
message size would be 55KB to 65KB
Never send both. It more than doubles the size of a plain text message
for no good reason. If a person is reading in plain text only, they will
only see the plain text version, the html is useless to them. If they
are reading in html, the plain text version is likewise useless.
