That's interesting. I personally *hate* formatted e-mail.
When I get one I promptly write back and ask to be removed
from the list; or I remove the formatting myself and if it
becomes incomprehensible I delete it. I also trash any
e-mail that comes with an attachment, immediately. I never
open e-mail attachments unless I specifically request them
and a request to join a list does *not* count. If your
e-mail comes with graphic files it is in the trash.
I receive two e-mail newsletters regularly that start with a
table of contents from CNN and Virtual Jerusalem. I find
both easy to use and well formatted, even though they are
