Make sure you set your mime type/subtype to Text/Html...

I think the entry in the header is:
Content-type: text/html;

What app/language are you using to send out the email?

turns out that Mail can't send html mail, and yahoo and other web-based e-mail seem to not allow formatting on OSX either.

solution? thunderbird i created the page then just attached a web page when sending, works perfectly in everything we've seen it on so far...
