At the moment your attempts to send plain text are failing in my copy of
Pro 4.

It may be a Eudora bug but doing a 'reply' to your message loses all
paragraphing, not just 72-80 character line breaks.

The MIME backward-compatibility guideline is to put the plaintext morph of
message ahead of the first MIME part, not in the first MIME part.  You should
review the capabilities of MIME multipart/alternative and MHTML as you plan
your usage.

Warning:  The WAI has not paid much attention to MIME applications as compared
to HTTP applications using the same media.  You should regard the
WAI-interested as a good pool from which to find informative peers.
