Chapter 5. Mail Editors > Unsolicited Advice

5.3. Unsolicited Advice

So which editor should you use? And which message format? We'll offer our recommendation, developed from many years of email correspondence and far too many hours wrestling with the inner workings of Outlook.

We suggest using Outlook as your default editor, and Plain Text as your default message format. In our opinion, this serves as the best daily working combination, while still leaving numerous options open for those situations that demand the formatting options found in HTML. We do not recommend the use of MS-RTF in anything but a closed Exchange Server environment—it is quirky and has unexpected consequences when used in conjunction with non-Microsoft email programs.
