Fair enough.  I can use the attachments tab workaround for now and
think about it.  If all file attachments are included in the body of
the email, then only the HTML entry is left of importance to me.  There
are enough emails that require the HTML view so that having it in sight
and open in one click is helpful. Perhaps others have different ideas
about how to approach this.
