I use kmail 1.9.5 on kde 3.5.5 and I noticed that the message was in HTML (and 
formatted "uncomfortably").

Some people using Outlook Express who have selected to always display messages 
as HTML get blank messages when you sent them plain text messages with kmail.  
The solution is on their end.  They have to select display as HTML when 
available, instead.  But if they are using OE, they probably don't know how 
to configure it, and think you are subversive for not using it.

So, while kmail is my choice now (mainly due to kontact integration and 
excellent spam filtering) it has its annoyances too.
