I engineered some hack to make it easier to read text/html parts. For a
long while I bugged people about it, but at this point I only bug people
who could or should know better.  I think there are better things to try
to teach to the clueless.

If you want to try my hack, it's here:


addMIMETextToHTMLEmail -- it's a procmail filter that *adds* a text/plain
part to the message.  This means that you can see the plaintext of the
message right away, without having to go through the w3m --dump step.
