This depends *entirely on recipients environment*.  May be, may be
not.  Maybe the parts are displayed, maybe they are not:

(second and fourth part NOT displayed)

Parts of the mail will be rendered as plain text, others as html.
Maybe different font sizes and shapes (plain text vs. html markup).
Maybe the recipient cannot display images at all.  Maybe recipient's
mail program explodes: Heck, there weren't even tests to see how
mailers other than Google webmail, GMX webmail (see above!), Gnus,
Wanderlust, Thunderbird and Outlook Express 6 cope with these

Just consider this: Messaging might be WYSIWYG

What *you* see is what *you* get


What *you* see is what *recipient* gets.

When communication with others it's all about WRGIWYM

What *recipient* gets is what *you* meant.

Then please at least /tell/ users of org-mime that they might break
their necks while just using org-mime to bundle message parts
