Hi Bryan

Plain Text. I loathe HTML email (and RTF I guess though I don't really
notice it). HTML has no place in email IMHO.

If I want to send a formatted document I do it in Word or whatever and send
the document or a PDF.

I also hate that Outlook constantly wants to help me insert bulleted and
numbered lists even though I've told it not to. I mention this simply
because I don't understand why it wants to help me with these features in a
plain text email <shrug> I feel better now I've mentioned it...

Subject: [PCTECH] Message formats for Microsoft Outlook Poll

Poll: If you're an Outlook user, do use send messages in HTML, Rich Text or
Plain text? What do you perceive the advantages of the format you're using?

Myself, I go back and forth between HTML and RTF. With HTML, I can select
files which have the same file name and dump them somewhere and it will
append to the file name where as RTF won't. On the other hand, I think RTF
looks better.
