I for one strongly urge non-html mails, and I have a html-capable
client as do most people. Many of us don't like it and have no wish to
impose it on those using Pine etc.
HTML mail is just irritating, it wastes bandwidth and it's completely
unnecessary. Email started as plain text because it had to and it
should stay as such to accommodate those on terminals, etc.
This is particualarly relevant as most of us are in UN*X environments
obviously. I used Elm for years (ASCII based) and it was much
preferable to any Exchange bollox or similar.
Tell me how html enhances any mails on this list please???
Please accede the wishes of the group which are to use the lowest
common denominator, i.e. plain text email. Let this matter be over.
