That is interesting to note. After several years of usin KMail, I hadn't
noticed that it doesn't allow inline pictures. It does, however, allow for
fonts and colors, if one prefers that. I just sent an email to my yahoo
account and it came across in HTML just fine with the fonts and colors.

we'll be stuck getting emails from all the grannies with some pansy
