I'm using PEAR:Mail and PEAR:Mail_Mime to send e-mails in both text and html versions, expecting the mail client (Outlook 2003) to display the right format -- depending on how the client is set up.
I'm confused about how that's supposed to work.
I set my Outlook 2003 to display all incoming e-mails in plain text and then I sent an e-mail to myself using my PHP script. Instead of receiving the 'text-only' e-mail, as I expected, I received the HTML version of the e-mail with all of the HTML tags simply stripped out. With my e-mail client set to receive only plain-text e-mails, should the text-only version of the e-mail have appeared instead of the stripped-down HTML version?
I guess I don't understand, in which circumstances, the text-only version would appear when sending a multipart e-mail message.
