Indeed we don't have HTML composition, that's a feature, I don't know
if it could be a blocker. The problem with reading HTML though is one
of the following:

- a bug, probably an easy one
- a non-conformant mail
- a mail that also has a text/plain part, in which case it's a feature
  not to show the html part by default.

We have one, but its license wasn't acceptable to Debian ftpmasters.
Very probably this could be fixed.
