A lot of the mail encoded with HTML doesn't have anything in the header
warning you the contents are HTML.

I just looked at a message written by a user, using "Microsoft Outlook
Express 6.00.2600.0000", and there's nothing in the header suggesting HTML
is used. The message is formatted with HTML, however.

Thanks, I'll check them out!
