Always Send Mail as Plain Text in Mac OS X
To avoid any font face irregularities and size oddities when sending emails across platforms (from Mac OS X Mail app to Windows Outlook, for example), it can be a good idea to use the ‘Plain Text’ format for all email correspondence. Setting Mail composition to default as Plain Text in Mail.app is easy enough:
- Go to the Mail menu and choose “Preferences…”
- Click on the “Composing” tab
- Under “Composing:” click the pulldown menu next to “Message Format:” so that “Plain Text” is selected
- Close out of Mail Preferences
All new emails will be composed and sent as plain text, although making rich text modifications can still override the plain text default. To avoid this, try attaching images rather than embedding them into mail messages.
Thanks for the tip idea, Gary!
