I've not bothered to raise this point before, but it is irritating to see HTML
mails and multipart messages when one is reading the list in digest mode, since
the list software won't strip out the non-textual parts. As a result, one must
endure huge messages full of HTML and encoded binaries.
Anyway, most of the best textual mail clients probably do choose the most
suitable part to display - it's been over five years since I used one of those
clients, though, so this is coming from memory. But Outlook, Netscape or any
other mail program won't strip things out when receiving digest mode messages
due to the stated textual nature of those messages received.
