HTML emails that all can read

I've been asked to come up with a HTML email format for our press releases.

Having failed to convince them that plain text would work better for all, I have now produced a working mock up of a simple HTML email.

Outlook will be used to send these out, so I have set up a template for our pres officers to use. They produce the press releases in Word so all they need to do is copy and paste text into the email.

Everything works fine when sending test shots to email clients that support HTML emails. What about those that only support plain text?

Is there a freebie email client or web based email that I can use to receive HTML emails in plain text format?

Is there a chance that emails will actually look in plain text?

Many thanks,

Lawrence

Why not send a multipart email?
Containing both html and plain text.

Hmm... sounds like the ideal scenario.

Does Outlook allow for multipart emails?
