First, apologies if this has already been mentioned, because I haven't been
keeping on on all the messages to this thread, but....

Why not send text email with a link to go to the pretty HTML version?  I
used to receive a mailing from someone who did that and I really liked it.
It's also a way to count how many people actually take the time to read the
mail and/or potential respondents to "action" email (i.e. -- heaven
forbid -- "sale mail").

If you want to get really sophisticated about it, then give *those* people
the option to receive the mailing in HTML.

People like having a choice and why make it harder on yourself than it has
to be?  Okay, so that last part is my philosophy in life, but, hey....
