I get on the internet using my cellphone as a modem.
Its only a 14.4Kbps modem so lots of HTML mail makes it take alot longer 
to download my email.
Most of the HTML email that I see are more than twice the size of a 
plain text email because it sends the message in plantext AND again in 
HTML format with all the HTML markup.
