What I was objecting to was that one day, after an update, I suddenly found 
that I was sending html mail.  The default now appears to be to have html 
enabled for sending.  I consider that very bad practice.  To have the 
capability so that people can switch it on if they desire is fine, but to have 
html as the default is not.

To compound the issue, it isn't just that the update was a major one.  Twice 
since then it has been re-set to enabled after updates.
