User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312 I quite often find myself going into the Mail & Newsgroup Account Settings in order to temporarily change my "Compose messages in HTML format" check box to send a single message in HTML (my default is non-HTML) and then setting it back once the message is started in the desired format. It would be nice if there was a way to choose the other format for a single new message ("compose") or a single reply/reply all message. Temporarily this could be done via right click menus for replying to messages and another entry in the File->New and Message menus, but hopefully, it would end up being drop down from the icons as well (like the "Get Message" and "Print" icons). I have no idea how the code is structured for this area, so I don’t really know how major or minor this request is. It’s just something I find myself doing once a week or so, so that I stick embed a picture in an message or because I want to make sure something formats just right in a no-wrap table….. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce:
You can do this easily per message: In the Compose window, click "Options -> Format -> Rich Text (HTML) Only". That's the best workaround. Do I understand your request correctly that you want a drop-down menu to the Compose button?
Shift-click on the compose button will invert the meaning of the HTML mail pref for that one message. This has been the case since Netscape 4 days.... There is already a bug on exposing that in the menus.
