To send HTML, you definitely need a mimetype. Otherwise
some clients will autodiagnose as HTML and attempt to render
it, some won't. Strictly speaking, they shouldn't do autodetection.
I also agree with Dan - HTML mail is evil, and I try to avoid it
whenever possible. That's one of the major vectors for worms,
viri and simliar malware.
