I agree with Steve - give a choice, especially if you are sending emails to
a UK (non free call) audience as any external assets such as
images/applets/content feeds will not appear immediately and if users
download and auto-log-off the Net then your message will be incomplete. On
saying that I would not question too much sending a self contained HTML
page - as long as the email client supports it.

Without going into all the possible email receiving and re-distribution
issues (such as mine - I often send my email to my phone when I know I am
going to be away from my computer for a reasonable amount of time) don't
force a customer to receive HTML only email - give a choice - otherwise you
may find that return traffic (from email comms) to your site decreases

You'd annoy me even if I did have an HTML compatible client.

Don't do this sort of thing. Learn the lesson of the Wired's of the world;
announce the option and give the choice.
