[thelist] Mac & HTML Formatted Email

Some programs just don't show html code in emails. Eudora, on the mac 
for example, doesn't show tables properly, or background but you 
*can* see gif files, and get the general look and feel of the piece.

However, if your client is like me, and downloads his mail, then 
turns off the connection to look, he probably won't see the gifs, if 
the mail client is like Eudora, as it only downloads the images when 
you have *opened* the email.

If you want to send the message to me, I can do a screen shot and let 
you see what I see. I'm using Eudora 5.0, System 9.04.
