Is there a way to send plain text and html in the same message using vbSendMail?
I think one would do that so that the recipient who doesn't accept html would be able to read the plain text.
The other reason why I would like to do so is because there are anti-spam software on some servers which "adds points" to messges with only html, which is a bad thing. I'm trying to lower my points for some of the communications I do with my clients, so the email doesn't get trapped by anti-spam software (such as spam assassin).

    No, it seems to be one or the other.  You would need a component that acts on a lower level, allowing you to send multipart messages.
