I'd like to agree, but I haven't received *ANY* properly formatted,
captioned and readable list of photos in an HTML email message in a
long while.  What I usually get it an email message with a completely
irrelevant subject -- usually a reply to a random thread that happened
to include my email address in the recipient list -- with a message
body as useless as:

                        Here's a photo collection

or even more useless, or empty.

This and other things, that show the original poster of the particular
HTML email message has _no_ intention to spend just *one* minute to
properly write a readable, useful email message, tend to be the main
reasons why I block all HTML email messages from non-work-related
email addresses, save them in a special folder and look at them only
when I really feel like spending some time to weed through the junk.
