I think it's a bad thing to do that as well. A lot of people don't even 
realize or know that HTML mail is being used. I rather tell the people about 
it and ask to disable it (and if they can't or don't want to do it there are 
other ways to not receive the mail). Though using KMail I don't always notice 
the HTML mail (I have it ignored and just display the plain text portion of 
the email if present). I'll try to keep a closer look on it and take action
