Created bulleted lists in Mail
Authored by: BohrMe on Aug 19, '05 07:34:40AM

I still find it amazing that people will insult others just because someone might prefer html email over text (might!).

Bandwidth is no longer a problem except for heavy graphics in conjunction with email. But that's not what we're talking about here. If you want more bandwidth get rid of all the spam. Html adds virtually no overhead compared to spam.

We don't seem to mind web pages that fill our browser with graphics and Flash animation yet we still argue about html in email.

We will kill trees to observe how our documents look on paper before we send it to others but we argue about html in email, which consumes electrons. Amazing.

The evolution of email has led down this path, like it or not, so either accept it or be a whiner in the minority. If you do not prefer html you can politely remind the sender of your preference. One does not have to be rude about it.

Just drop it. It's a stupid argument anyway.
