Thanks for the correction, then. It's entirely possible I misunderstood
the no global thing, and they meant only that it couldn't be disabled per
address, as in, when sent to a mailing list, but not for ordinary mail.
If that's the case and it does global but not per address, it was probably
my misunderstanding of what I was told, so my fault.
In any case, glad I had it wrong on the global HTML thing, as I was rather
disappointed in GMail if it couldn't do that.
Duncan - List replies preferred. No HTML msgs.
