Plain text and html text versions in universal email

No Plain Text (only html text) in universal email when sending with PEAR Mail

Hi Jason,

it's been while since I first looked into this. I have only recently figured out what the problem is.

I have converted to using the template method in the wizard as you suggested, however I have spotted what's been happening..

html text and plain text versions of an email do not get sent if sending email using pear mail, (only the html version)
whereas both html & plain text are sent if using php mail

Unfortunately for my newsletter I need to send it using pear mail (web hosting spam prevention reasons).
.. and best practice newsletter sending (to avoid being classed as spam) requires both plain & html outputs.

I've tested my script using both mail sending formats and.. php mail does, pear mail doesn't ..output both html & plain txt
