Bye Bye, HTML Email

Email is still pretty important to me. That’s why I took what I consider to be a bold step this week: I switched my office email to text-only.

I’d been using text-only for personal accounts, well, forever. But given that almost everyone else at my workplace uses HTML – mostly to an ill effect (stationery, Comic Sans MS, etc.) – it was hard not to use it. But there’s no good reason for me to use it, anymore. It’s just making my emails bulkier – that’s all.

Please tell me I’m not alone in my hatred of HTML email.
