I use the Eudora e-mail program, and I can choose under Tools,
Options. One of the options is Styled text, When I click that it asks
me to check if I want to send styled text, plain text only or plain
and styled. The latter would come when I am answering a message
written in something like blue italic. If I say, plain and styled,
that portion of it will stay blue italic. Otherwise if I choose plain
only, and it will all be black and standard.
Just for fun I went over and looked at Outlook Express, which came
bundled with my computer. It too has Tools, Options. Under Send it
has a default of HTML for sending messages, but one can easily click
the button for plain text.
