Unfortunately, it becomes harder and harder to just use mutt as HTML mail
prevails. I remember the late 90's/early 00's when even Windows mailling
lists discouraged html, but now everyone has to have their pretty colors
for what seems, at least to me (an admittedly aging grouch), no benefit and
tons of bandwidth usage, attack vectors, and the like.

Even my wife refuses to not use it when sending me email and I usually have
to wind up using a browser to open it because it will have something not
visible.  (Which isn't hard to do in mutt, see 

http://jasonwryan.com/blog/2012/05/12/mutt/ and I agree with the author's
feelings about html mail.
