I'm not sure if you are one of the folks looking at messages thru a browser 
or reading them in email. For email, Starlord had a way-simpler 2-sec change 
to see them in MS Outlook than mine but I don't use a pc unless I absolutely 
have to (I have a unix workstation) so I bless his familiarity...

But if you share what software you are using to read email, I bet someone 
here can help... by that I mean a one time quick setting change that will let 
you see everything. That lets EVERYONE be able to send/share what they have 
in any standard format that they have access to.

It may sometimes be geek speak but a little understanding or effort to be 
able to read all encodings, means that more people can share, which is what I 
think the objective is. 

You might think that a person is emailing a gif or a jpeg format photo, but 
in fact THIS NEVER HAPPENS. What everyones (without exception) email software 
does for you automatically is "encode" the picture. The standards for email 
when it was born allowed only for the transmission of asci characters (think 
plain text). So what folks did to be able to send audio or video or pictures, 
is "encode" it so that it could be transported around the internet looking 
like plain text and using the standard mail protocols. The end receiver would 
then need to "unencode" it.

Your email software does this for you invisibly, and most email software use 
an encoding type called MIME. Someone elses might send it in UUENCODE.

Sorry for the length. Just hoping the a little patience and explanation might 
help... Everyone uses a different approach...
