Outlook, RTF.
Outlook Express, Plain Text

For the most part, I do not like to receive HTML email. especially
forwarded emails with a lot of junk in them. HTML makes it harder to clean
them up before passing them on. And news letters. many that used to be
text, have changed their format to HTML without even asking first. even when
they still maintained a text version. for many, i had to log into their
sites to get it changed back. but now i am sliding down a rant, so let me

also, a little off topic, but I do not like emails forwarded as attachments.
especially those that can get 10 or more deep.

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.
