Dare putting a list somewhere?

Sure, how about:

• Thunderbird 12
• GMail
• Mail.app
• Opera Mail 11.64
<bryan> How about a practical suggestion for the (probably many) of us that have to use Microsoft Outlook? In my experience the conversion of rich text or html to plain text involves significant one-way conversion in the content. And it's not clear at all how to get the "towers" effect, so emails end up with a combination of MUA-applied formatting and adhoc formatting. I think unless W3C (1) mandates all email discussion be done through the mail archive website, (2) enabled the ability to respond on the archive website (and not just invoke the default MUA), and (3) enforces the "towers" effect in replies to ensure consistency, we will not achieve effective, consistent use of plain text and inline commenting for W3C email.
