The links in woody can handle color (at least to some extent), you
might want to try that.  For sending HTML mail you could try something
like gnp (It is an editor intended for HTML) and set the Content-Type:
header yourself.

Balsa has a fairly nice GUI and can render HTML mail (and images,
IIRC) but it doesn't handle mailing lists (like mutt does) and I don't
think it can send HTML mail.
