Agreed, its not that HTML rendering support is being requested here.
Stripping out HTML is essential. 

It has become more important to be weeded out because most the webmail
services & desktop email clients do simple html by default and users have
started to find advantages of the same. Also in my own observance html
emails are note poked at any more in public mailing lists. 

So indeed a good solution is to strip off emails of html for reading, any
directions & plans yet ? 

Additionally how tough or simple will this problem be to tackle ?
