Are you serious?!  A *requirement*?  I'd scream loudly if this was
forced on me.  I use VM/XEmacs so I can handle MIME and usually
HTMLified email is just an annoyance, but because there are so many
MUAs out there, many which do not handle HTML in news or mail, I
always point this out to people when I get such email.  I can't
remember a time when someone responded that this was a requirement and 
it was my tough luck.
I suppose there are lots of shops where Netscape is foisted on people
as their only choice, but still, if they want to communicate with the
rest of the world, they better learn how to do it right or many people 
will just ignore them.
