  1. What we really want or need in Opera is some styled text options (i.e., italics, bold, underline, colored) when we compose emails.

    Even better would be some HTML forwarding/composing capability.

    Smileys are a mere diversion, it seems, right now.

  2. Smileys are easy to add, and you still send just plain text, which means that it is universally compatible, unlike HTML, which cannot be read by all e-mail clients (and different e-mail clients interpret HTML differently).

  3. Come on….styled text cannot be that hard to add….most email clients do quite well in receiving HTML mail, incidentally….even OperaMail/M2 receives HTML quite fine, usually.

    Why not just give the user the choice like you do for the receiving end of mail?

    For now, I will fire up the competition's software programs and will NOT pay for Opera.

  4. There's a saying:

    "Be liberal in what you accept, and conservative in what you send."

    Adding support for styling might also be a significant undertaking, and there are other things that are more important to deal with at the moment.

    Not to mention the fact that HTML isn't handled at all by some e-mail clients, and that the best solution would be a proper standard for formatting, rather than the ugly hack that using HTML in e-mail is.

    But this is a discussion people have been through many times. If you would like to read more about the pros and cons of HTML in e-mail, try a search in the forum.
