Choosing Plain Text in Hotmail and Outlook Express
Ok. Let me start out by admitting I'm probably way in the minority on this issue:

I really prefer receiving (and sending) PLAIN-TEXT e-mails (versus HTML or Rich-Text e-mails).

Plain-Text e-mails...

are environmentally friendly (versus bloated with unnecessary characters), so they download more quickly and take up less space on your computer;

are less likely to be erroneously flagged as spam;

are universally-readable in any e-mail software program; and

lend themselves easily to "quoting" when sending replies.

Among my RSS feeds this morning was an eye-catching topic from the Ask Leo feed:

Choosing Plain Text in Hotmail

If you've ever wanted to know how to do this (or if people have complained about your rich-text or HTML e-mails), check it out!

What's the difference between "plain text" and "HTML" email?
This article explains the differences nicely, and it shows you how to modify Outlook Express to make plain-text your default.
