Honestly I doubt that. When I (docomo) send an email with an image
then it is a standard MIME mail. 100% standard. When I create a
deco-mail then it is again standard MIME HTML mail. There is no MMS
for those phones. Softbank might use it, because from "old" times when
they were j-phone/vodafone. But the others for 100% sure don't.

And even softbank sends normal mails. deco-mail is the same as for
docomo and when I send an image from softbank to docomo or vica versa
it is just pure mail.
