Having email converted to an attachment allows me to immediately see if there are any other files included with message. And let me tell you, this has saved my butt time after time! I've lost count of how many times I've gotten email with HTML attached, and malicious code, worms and viruses attached right next to it. If my email program was configured to "conveniently" display HTML as a web page, then a lot of those attached files would have opened on their own and done who knows what to my system.
So, if you receive a lot of email yourself, be careful what you allow to come in. If you run a newsletter or Email update service of any kind, please be courteous and at least ASK before sending HTML formatted email. And when you do have permission to send HTML email, don't include heavy graphics, scripts or other file attachments.
Text may not be as glamorous, but it's a heck of a lot safer and much easier for your readers to glance through.
