If you don't have personal control over the mail system you are using,
it's possible that you don't have control over whether or not you use
HTML.  Your corporate mail system may be Dictated From On High [where
the air is thin].  Sure, you can get an external mail account.  But you
can't even ask the vendor whether they use HTML, they may not know what
you're talking about [isn't the Web the same as the Internet?], or the
answer depends on the phase of the moon or other intangible variables
[this has been observed].
