But by pushing customers to open attachments to get the content we are 
encouraging them to be complacent about opening all attachments, and 
that's a great way to end up getting infected with malware.

I agree whole heartedly. If the Marketing/Sales folks are stuck up on branding,
I'd explore sending a MIME multipart/alternative with branded HTML and a
plain text version with no degradation of actual content. And keep the whole
thing under 25-30KB total. Creating them is pretty easy with perl MIME::Lite.
