Yes, and AOL 6 is broken in that it doesn't (easily) let the sender send in 
Plain Text.  If 20% of your users use AOL 6, what are you going to 
do?  Whine that their software is broken, or install demime?

Which one will be the faster fix?

I'm all for griping at stupid software designers, but sometimes you need to 
design a solution on your end to deal with the stupid decisions made at the 
other end.

A footer with unsub information is a damn sight better than all the ads 
from ad supported lists.  I'm on a listbot list that I'm preparing to host 
just because I'm fed up with all the ads!
