628HTML email is discouraged, but not forbidden (there are some MUA, specifically
629web-based that make it very hard to disable HTML entirely). Beware that some
630users may have their recieving side configured to hide HTML entirely, so it
631might look like you are ignored, especially if you sent HTML-only email. In
632order of preference, you should endeavour to send: text/plain, multipart with
633text/plain before text/html, text/html. MIME is acceptable and widely used.

637Please do not send any vacation or out of office messages to the list. In the
638interests of reducing list spam, if you set any auto-responding message that
639goes to the lists, we will unsubscribe your account from ALL lists. Any
640previously subscribed addresses that send mail server messages to the lists will
641also be removed.
