I'm using mutt, and I have it set so that as soon as it sees html it
shows it in a text dump from lynx. You can't stop everyone from using
html, but you can get it formatted nicely to read in your fav cli email
reader

   720x480 would indicate a letterboxed version of the film to fit a 4x3
   frame. IMDB reference is pretty good. You could always cross reference
   with tmdb :-)
   Mike, apologies for the non plain text version of the email. I haven't
   been able to find the text only setting on the android mail client yet.

   DVD @ 720/480 is 1.5, not 1.85. Are you sure HenryV is not anamorphic?
   I wouldn't trust the IMDB tech specs. Use the source, Luke! (in this
   case the DVD media in hand).

   If you don't get a new rip, you can try to play it back with:Â
   mplayer -aspect 1.85 henryv.avi
   BTW I'm keen on mplayer/mencoder (obviously) but I forgot to say: if
   all this seems like a lot of wasted time, you could "just use
   handbrake"! :)

   It's really quite good.Â
