you can use mutt, or some other mailer too.
The problem becomes this:
Some of us read our e-mail in very diverse locations. From a windows
machine one day, an X term the next, and then via the ssh client on a cisco
at a POP the next.
It's just polite to format your messages such that they will fit
on a 80x24 screen with a fixed font size. I know people who prefer
outlook (why, i don't know), or netscape, or many other mailers.
If everyone would do the nice thing and format your messages,
it would be appreciated.
