I noticed that Boost's mailing list rules don't forbid sending useless HTML
attachments which is not a good idea for discussion lists. Please let's
to avoid this.
* Smaller messages
* Faster opening (difference between text and HTML parts can be
factor 10 and more!)
* More consistent display formatting (no differences between
text and HTML can occur without HTML)
* There is absolutely no need to send HTML stuff. If one really depends
on pictures or similar stuff the person should use normal attachments
or even better upload the data to a remote site
Omitting HTML parts is just a common rule for many lists, strange that Boost
didn't enforce it yet.
