    I have the same issue under Netscape.

    While I don't think we should prohibit anyone from sending HTML email
    (in part because I can read it) I'm still sticking with sending text
    email. So, I'd vote for preferring text (but not vote to prohibit HTML),

    Also HTML mail through the list sometimes gets banner adds with embedded
    graphics, which presumably gives out more info when your client goes to
    the server to get the gif, thus being a privacy issue in this particular
