I use Thunderbird for mail now since half a year, and most of it is OK. One of the problems I have is when composing a new mail in HTML. In Apple Mail I could use RTF if I'm correct, and that worked a lot better. I don't know if it's HTML vs RTF, but the way Thunderbird handles font sizes and paragraphs is very irritating.
I start writing and the font size is small like I want it to be. Then I click on a button or do something else, then return to the mail, click below the text, and suddenly the font is bigger.
Another problem is with paragraphs. I write, start a new paragraph and use a double enter to create a white line. Then at times it changes and there is lots more whitespace between paragraphs.
It's not so much that I want one or the other, but I want it consistent. Why does the bigger font appear? If I make it smaller, then suddenly other things mess up. I hate this.
So I could use the plain text option. What I typically see from other people using Thunderbird and mailing me, is that when these mix with HTML mail (by replying to a plain text mail in HTML), the plain text doesn't wrap anymore. Another very irritating thing.
So is there a way to get thunderbird working properly when writing and reading mail?
