First of all, let me point out that the Plain Text option in Yahoo! ONLY affects e-mails that you compose. You have no control over how people sendyou e-mails and cannot force everyone that sends you e-mail to send it in Plain Text. Second, I jsut tried the Plain Text option in Yahoo! and it is GREAT for creating e-mails, but Yahoo! does an exquisite job of converting those e-mails to HTML when you send the e-mail. It appears that the Plain Text option is ONLY for creating the e-mail and NOT for how the e-mail is sent. Threfore, from what I can see it will not help at all in receiving e-mails. Your e-mail that you waid you composed in Plain Text was a beautifully crafted HTML message when I received it!
Thanks for the suggestion of the Windows Secrets Newsletter. I'll have to check this out. As for FireFox, I personally just do not like the interface, but I dislike IE 8 even more than IE 7 which was a horrible dis-improvement from IE 6. I'm being force to consider switching, sad though I am. I am a web developer, and just don't like how FireFox interpres HTML code.
Have a Great Day!

From Richard in Louisiana:
Yahoo Classic Mail has Plain-Text option; look to far right of where you compose your e-mail, and there is a Plain Text option to toggle
Re: IE8 and Mozilla Firefox...Firefox hands-down; Micro$oft just doesn't "get it" re: all the problems lingering in IE6, 7, etc. (no alphabetization for Bookmarks,for example)
Has anyone encountered "Issues" with ZT (8.0, 9.0, etc.) using Firefox?
I highly recommend Windows Secrets Newsletter (WSN, at http://windowssecre ts.com/), as many of the issues re: IE7, 8, etc. are being addressed constructively, vs. the myraid of "Knowledge Base" articles, that are so technical as to be often incomprehensible. ..WSN recently addressed another thorny issue; invisible Windows Updates from Microsoft, that may be incomplete, due to Microsoft's "throttling down" of updates from their Servers!
Thanks for considering. ..
