Please don't send me private mail if you can't turn off your broken
mail filters.  (Sending mail from cable IPs is perfectly valid; I'm
not going to route my mail through an extra hop just to work around
some people's ridiculous notions of spam filtering.  I should start
a blacklist containing every IP.  Blocks all spam!  People would
love it.  Can't send me mail?  Well, that's your problem ...)

Sorry, I meant your mail infrastructure as a whole by "client", not just
the final MUA.  If you don't want to spend storage on HTML versions, then
that's up to whichever piece is responsible for filtering mail, eg.

I just think the correct fix, if people don't want to archive certain
bits, is to not archive those bits, not to ask people not to send them.
(Maybe that's true in the general case but doesn't hold well for useless
HTML attachments, but it's probably also the only *effective* fix.)
