Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

"When people tell me HTML email is evil, I always press them to tell me why."

I'll tell you why: because it's obnoxious and rude.

I want to read e-mail in the format and style that's most comfortable to me; anything else and you're immediately hindering any chances of me dealing with your message in an efficient fashion.


I think it's hilarious that your case against HTML formatting uses both italics and bold text. Thanks for proving yourself wrong. Saves a lot of time for the rest of us. ;)

I didn't make against against HTML formatting, just its use in e-mail.

(FWIW, I make my living as a web developer, so making against HTML as a whole would be somewhat ridiculous).

How is e-mail different from any other form of written communication? Why, in your opinion, should it be allowed to use formatting on web pages, in printed magazines, newspapers, books, postcards, letters -- but not in e-mails?

Your case is somewhat ridiculous.
