I think we're straying from the point. I don't like HTML email for
many reasons other than the bandwidth one. 

I have mucho bandwidth, and if it so suited me, I'd just send all mail
as text and pictures rendered on a big TIFF file, and send two copies
just in case the first one somehow got messed up.

Anyway... the point is that independent of bandwidth, there are reasons
to dislike HTML email, as many people have pointed out earlier in the
thread. I don't have to be the person with slow dialup, nor the person
with lots of email, to think this way.
