I would prefer this approach, but it's tricky to implement. A first step 
would be to ensure that MathML is generated only when all recipients 
have MathML capable email clients. I'll give that some thought since I 
can see why this would make it more useful feature for you.

It wouldn't break as long as MailMate reuses the `Message-ID`. That is 
strictly a bit wrong, but the main problem is probably some confusion in 
your own sent messages folder which would contain multiple message with 
the same `Message-ID`.

Theoretically, this is possible, but in practice I'm pretty sure a lot 
of email clients would fail horrible with regard to doing the right
