I don't say that it should be, I sad that I think it _is_ a non-html mail
client. I think that is right since you have some problems with html ;)

I can only talk for my experience. I don't know one person which likes html
mails. Most of them will delete such a mail without comment.
Maybe I get two private mails in html per year. And than, mostly it was an
error in netscape/ms product properties.

Of course I love the look of LCARS, I use it on my laptop but you will never
get an email from me with a lcars look ;)
And I like simple web pages. I don't like lynx but I also don't use vi/joe/
for my mails.
Maybe this helps you:
Kmail --> Settings --> Configure --> Composer --> Headers
Maybe you can add it here
