In fact, having run many mailing lists, they are almost always (99%
probability) Outlook Express users... which defaults to such stupidity.
I find that beating them severely about the head area does a wonderful
job, but I fear the legal consequences :-)

On that note, could we perhaps have an option to strip everything off an
email that isn't raw text?  If what's left is nothing, then bounce it
back to the originator with a complaint :-)

Hmm, wonder how hard that is with MIMEtools.
