Hi Phil,

Geesh, that gobbledygook text is annoying. I think that's added on your end. Here's the archived message that doesn't have it:

There's not an option to request HTML-formatted e-mails that you missed.

I'm not sure of all the issues with HTML e-mails. I know there are some cons, but maybe they have gotten less these days. We'll see if we can find time to research it...

Best,
~Shawn
