I'm forced to use Outlook at one work place. I have to strongly
disagree. The editor of Outlook is outright horrible. It also changes my
fonts all the time. I regularly end up writing emails with 2 different
fonts. I have no idea how that happens. Worse, it doesn't go back to
normal fonts after pasting something, so I often end up either writing
the whole message in Courier or having to manually fix up fonts.
Outlook drives me nuts to no end.
And, FWIW, I do not think that presentation is something the author
should determine, but rather the recipient, the reader. I do *not* want
to see replies in red - they are extremely hard to read for me. Luckily,
I can ignore all that nonsense with "View as | Simple HTML" - in TB, but
not in Outlook.
