Thanks for your offer of help.

That is true, but my client is on a corporate lan (and a fast one too, I
gather) so he is always connected to the internet.

I'd love that. Unfortunately, the client is not using Eudora. But it may be
worth the effort anyway. I should mention that the email also contains a flash
file for audio. The audio begins to play as soon as you open the email, so be

FWIW, the client sent the email back to me, and when I did a view-source, none
of the html tags were present.


He says HTML is enabled for his mail client, so I wonder if proxy servers or
mail servers might have something to do with this?

If you are still willing to receive the email, I would be grateful. Please
reply if you are. I know that you agreed to once, but since this is a rather
annoying email - what with the audio and all - I thought I'd ask again.
