    Your post perfectly illiterates the problems with HTML emails

    The information I want from that email is
    Hours of Operation
    Location
    Services provided
    the HTML email adds excessive bloat, for no added value over a properly formatted textual based email.
    Wow, you know, I never really thought about it like that. The bb is just weeding out all of the crap I don't actually need to see haha.

    deRusett can you clarify this quote. It doesn't make sense.

    I think what he means is, no matter how good something is, he can always find something to make it better - and then wants that something. Basically just being a brat.

    I think complacency and/or contentment are the death knell of progress. That said, I don't want full HTML email.
    I thought I did. I begged for it. Then I got my first bill after buying my Atrix....I'm on an unlimited plan, so I didn't get charged, but the amount of data had more than tripled.
    Nope....leave me to my BB's way of handling data. Had it the other way, don't want it.

    I want the user to have the option of HTML email, the same as if he/she uses Outlook or webmail on a PC. As long as the option to disable HTML email is available to users who do not want it, that is fine. However, I feel the user should be given a choice.

    you can go unlimited amount of emails and you have seperate or unified inboxes. its however you choose. Before i think its was unlimited number but would only load back 1 month, the rest would fall off the phone type deal. I hated that. That was the main reason to look elsewhere. But they did fix that with gingerbread i think.
    The HTC default mail client is night and Day between 2.2 and 2.3. not sure how much that is Android itself or HTC's doing. Android still has a way to go over BB for messaging, but considering all else, unless you just need a "messaging phone" and not a "smartphone" it balances much in favor of Android.

    Of course I am speaking from a BB5 perspective. No real experience with BB6, or obviously BB7.

    What I meant, as I mentioned in an earlier post, is that I also want to have the ability to compose HTML emails, not just the ability to read them.

    Android allows a user to send a new email in HTML format, not just plain text format.

    I have no idea if any other smartphone platforms (iOS, Win 7 Phone, WebOS) offer composition of new emails in HTML format or not. I started another thread about that subject, but have not had many responses.

    What exactly would the benefits be from composing html emails from a BB? So far I fail to see them.

    The format would look nicer when viewed on a desktop if images were visible in the body of the email and there were no arrows at the beginning of each sentence.

    7fiddy hit the nail on the head.

    No matter what comes to market I will always use it and think of ways I would improve it, thus never being happy, I can be pleased with a product, but they will never make a perfect product. When they do, I should check myself into a loony bin because clearly my mind has left me.

    It would be nice to have an app that you can "launch" to "render HTML" for an email, but I don't support anything that furthers the over use of HTML in emails!

    It's as bad as webpages that embed pdf files!

    i agree i miss her too. She always had some really great arguments and suggestions for advancements for not only RIM but every manufacturer. Also never afraid to voice her opinion.

    I agree with both of you.

    I didn't think she was gone. I thought she was still a Mod, but just not actively posting lately.

    When I wrote this post
    Excellent Start,

    BUT I do hope we remain more loosely moderated than the sister sites,

    As I don't want to receive a 24hour Ban when I suggest someone buy an Android, or iPhone over a Blackberry.

    Or when I go on a Rant about Poor quality in a RIM product, be it software or hardware.

    I really hope to see some weigh in comments from those who are Active "antagonistic" posters, though are not doing so in such a way as to create a fight, but rather bring a view from the other side as to their feelings of this new direction and what their concerns are.
    I was specifically talking about civic because everyone was calling her a troll, her and I had a few disagreements in our time but she was one of 4 people on this site who I searched her posts atleast once a week to read what she had to say in topics I was not active in.
