    Fonts change & pics lost when forwarding email
    I "Switched" last year and have been ignoring one problem thinking it was something I just had to get used to because my mother always told me "you can't always have everything you want". I have searched and searched the forums. Here's the problem.

    Someone sends me an email that contains different types, sizes, and colors of fonts, and also includes embedded photos, and cute little wiggling icons. When I try to forward this cutesy email as is, my email is nothing but the same plain font with no photos and no cute little wiggly icons. My friends must think my emails are REALLY dull.

    Is there a fix or do I just have to live with it?

    Maybe it's a feature to protect the rest of us from all of that stuff?

    That's why, change it to Rich Text.

    Personally, I haven't considered rich text to be 'rude' since i gave up using only pine, mail (not Mail), or mutt as my mail clients.. back around the turn of the millennium

    Oh, Mike (Dysfunction),
    You misunderstood my 2nd post!! I was THANKING YOU for responding appropriately to my question. And I was chastising the other poster with the forum member since March,2004 by the name of "technologist" who also responded to my question, but his response was rude.

    Thank you, Mike, you have solved my problem!! And I will definitely add to your "reputation"!!!

    I think you may have read it wrong, seems as though he was just making a joke. I don't believe he was being rude at all. I think you over reacted a bit much.

    Either way this has helped me out, so thanks to the guy who answered the question.
