A little education will not hurt. I think we should not answer those emails, and that we should send a request to the sender to re-send in simple text.

To everybody who is reading this mailing list. Pleae, please, please


a last big please with powdered sugar:

Don't use html e-mails. Every e-mail program is able to use plain text
format. It's exhausting reading letters in appr. 6pts. or 2 lines with
very small letters followed by a paragraph with big letters and
different distances in between.

I already stopped using mutt, but even evolution or kmail is not able


show the o*je crap in a readable manner.

Html e-mails may not disturb someone who reads only 5-10 e-mails a


but when receiving hundreds at work and at home you can't change the
appearance of your mua every 10th e-mail. This is even more a problem
when people proudly want to present their newest windows




If someone doesn't know how to configure his e-mail program, please


me an e-mail (for my sake still in html), and I will help him/her.

Thanks in advance
