I vote in favor this proposal, with a slight reservation about automatic
disqualification of HTML messages.

Were it up to me, every message I ever write would be in plain old text, but
our dad-blamed Exchange server insists on HTML-ifying my messages as it
hands them to the outside world.  

There is one way around this, which is to set the properties on the message
to use UUENCODE for attachments instead of the default method (MIME, I
think), even if there are no attachments.

But there isn't a way (that I have found) to do this globally.  I have to do
it for EVERY stinkin' message I send.  And occasionally I forget to do one.
(I darn near forgot to do THIS message!)

My two cents.
