For anyone using Outlook Express on Mac (at least version 5.02, no idea what
other versions it will work on) I have an AppleScript that strips the HTML
portion of messages.  I have it in the scripts menu to apply to messages
from my colleagues; but I also have Outlook Rules arranged to automatically
apply this script to all mailing list messages (it files use-rev and
improve-rev automatically into particular folders, and runs this script on
them as it does so).

If anyone else is using Mac OE and would like a copy of this script, drop me
a line.
