Eudora Pro 3.03 does include this header:

     Content-Type: text/enriched; charset="us-ascii"

when there is formatted content.  It does follow the text/enriched
standard, not HTML.

It's possible that earlier Eudoras did not set the content-type properly.
Eudora identifies itself using an X-Mailer header:

     X-Mailer: QUALCOMM Windows Eudora Pro Version 3.0.3 (32)

in my case.
