RE: [anti-spam-wg] Imaged spam

I believe I said that I only receive html-emails. Some others also stated the fact that people send html emails. 
We can discuss how useful html-emails are if you'd like. In my business it is sometimes not the message itself, but how you present it that counts. In other businesses it can be the exact opposite.

So perhaps the summary is more like this:
Some people send text emails.
Some people send html emails.
Some people send something else.
Some people dislike certain content types. Others don't.

So to summarize: - there are some readers on the list that find e-mail with a textual body useful, and have come to the conclusion that 99% of e-mails that are HTML-only (or empty text part + HTML) are garbage - some other readers disagree, claiming that "only HTML e-mails have value".
