Is it possible to send a message that identifies if the mailreader is configurate to read HTML or text mail?

Christopher Koenigsberg

The MIME content-type "multipart/alternative" is intended so you can send different versions of the same "message" all bundled together, e.g. an HTML version, a plain text version, maybe an audio version, etc., and let the remote mail reading client decide for itself, which one is appropriate for it, and for its current user.
