Someone sent me an e-mail in both text and HTML, with embedded (attached) images. One of the images is 3311-pixel wide. As a consequence, gmail widens the text box accordingly, which makes the e-mail very hard to read. As an alternative to not showing the image, is there a way to force gmail to show the text/plain version rather than the text/html version, when the e-mail is sent in both formats?

It's not a cross-post. This is a different question. – gerrit Jan 7 '13 at 11:04
