You can still compose your messages in HTML but where you determine 
whether the message is sent as HTML or in ASCII (text) is in the 
CONTACTS list where you specify (at the bottom of the entry) how posts 
to this address should be sent: html, text or unknown.

I always compose my mail in HTML because some of the people I deal with 
only recognise HTML (ie, if they saw text they wouldn't know what it was 
- they are all Windows users you see :-) ) but posts to mail lists - 
like this one - has the Contact address configured to have mail sent to 
it as text.
