That's interesting - I didn't actually see how you are sending HTML.
My Gmail is set to "default text encoding" (not UTF-8) and I seem to
be sending messages in text:

Subject: Re: what is "Document Viewer"?
From: "Sharpe, Sam J" <sam sharpe+lists redhat gmail com>
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

Your messages are sending in both HTML and text, so technically the
receiver can decide which one to view based on their capabilities or
preferences (but you're still wasting other people's bandwidth - which
is typically what they are objecting to). I had no idea how you set
Gmail to do that, but having had a look around, I found this post:
http://personalweb.about.com/b/2005/04/04/gmail-lets-you-send-html-email.htm

I've never noticed the "Rich formatting" link that appears above my
compose box before, but I think that's what you are using - try
hitting the "Plain text" link you should have and see if that sticks
as a preference (as I can't see anywhere to force it).

jbyers:
how could you see that I was sending in both HTML  and text?

I dont see a Content-Type line on my gmail sends
is there some configure step i am missing?

I have left utf selected
but also did switch out of the rtf  into text

Is this email being received as only text?
