HTML email, my way or the highway

I receive requests from clients for information.  When I reply, some have been sent in a format that does not support html email.  Outlook 2007 will allow me to change to html email but the recipient does not view it in html so it looks like garbage.  Is there some way to force my reply to be viewed in html?

The email rendering method is client dependent. I don't think there is any way to force the clients' settings, as some dont even have the option.

To amplify what JDEE8297 said, the answer is "no".  You cannot control the way your messages are viewed.

Putting the information into a PDF or RTF file and attaching it would probably be the best solution if formatting is important.
