    I agree with you , but you should consider the fact that many people 
here are beginners or have to use this M$ stuf in their work enviroment. 
Here in my work, I have to use  a Ms Windows 2000  machine , but at 
least  my e-mail client is Mozilla Thunderbird  :  -  )
Html mail is  a pain and the worst thing about it is that it may bring a 
lot of problems to companies who use it, specially if it works with M$ 
products..The admins here are trying to convince people not to use it , 
but its very dificult, because many think its a lack of stile to use 
single text e-mails : - (
