Just as an FYI about doing "Convert HTML To Text" and "striphtml":

I had been wanting to do this for a VERY long time ... but if you do it,
it means that the message is no longer in its original format, which in
turn means that you should not submit it to sa-learn or razor (because you
will have removed things that would help sa-learn truely learn from it,
and razor matches against the original content).

Ultimately, submitting it to sa-learn and the razor were more important
to me, so I turned off "Convert HTML To Text".
