i believe, if you go back thru gmail account configuration, you will find
settings to send both or either. it has been too long from when i configured
my gmail accounts. it would be good for you to review them and have a better
understanding of what op has not done.

a main problem, which has brought all this about, is that there are too
many gmail *users*, and not enough who *use* gmail.

to clarify, *users* simply use gmail with out configuring.

those who *use* gmail, go thru entire configurations and set gmail to
"conform" to preferred ways of sending email.

for a better understanding of *bad html*, have a look at;

  email "bad+html""bad%2Bhtml"&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&num=100&lr=&as_filetype=&ft=i&as_sitesearch=&as_qdr=all&as_rights=&as_occt=any&cr=&as_nlo=&as_nhi=&safe=images


  email "html=+bad""html%3D%2Bbad"&spell=1
