Inline HTML containing the nub of the email?  Matters for
marketing/commerce (and spam)... not for normal person to person
communication.  MUUG [RndTbl] seems to do quite fine without it! :-)

I'll grant you attached pics are handy, but making the actual email
content HTML is hurl-inducing.  Not to mention 99% of the punters out
there *still* don't format their email correctly even with all the HTML
WYSIWYG gadgets.  In fact, it usually makes them worse (ever see one
trying to inline reply point-by-point and getting it completely
wrong? and they probably spent an hour doing so).  Ugh.  (Oh ya, and
email marketers are tracking the heck out of your HTML email MUA...)
