That usually only works with ISP's like AOL because of their proprietary software- the same software that allows you to see the read/trashed status of your recipients (provided they too are on AOL) as well as format the background image/colors, script fonts, bold, colored fonts and include inline resized images etc.
Most ISP's and email software don't transfer all that gobble-de-gook, it all goes as plain ASCII text sans the colors and gorgeous looking script fonts, while some of it goes out as a page or two of included trash that comes as messed up wannabe html like this from one lady that *IS* on AOL and every time she mails me on my NON AOL acct I get two paragraphs of this in part, stuck in the middle of her messages;

<x-html><!x-stuff-for-pete id="0">
<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD W3 HTML//EN">
<html><head><style type="text/css"><!--
blockquote, dl, ul, ol, li { padding-top: 0 ; padding-bottom: 0 }
--></style><title>Re: OWL PANEL</title></head><body>
