Without seeing the style rules for invisible, I can't be completely sure 
about the accessibility, but using "invisible" for a class name, to me, 
indicates a fundamental failure to understand the purpose of classes. 
They are not to directly control the presentation.

Emails are not formal business letters, whatever businesses may want.
RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
