Sheesh. Kinda dramatic... Why not just send *both*? People with HTML-capable clients get your nicely branded message, other people get plain text.

If you're using a Servlet 2.4 container, the Jakarta Mailer2 taglib makes this wonderfully easy, but there are probably tools available for other environments.
