With Outlook Express, you could create, in HTML code, any number of stationery templates using all the functionality of HTML. One of these was set as the default stationery, but you could select any of the others to start a new e-mail. I had one with my bank details, one with my home address, one for business, and so on, and all personally formatted through being able to code in HTML.
It was the biggest selling point Outlook Express had. You could format paragraph spacing, use em-dashes, specify colours and fonts, insert and format tables, the whole nine yards: anything HTML can do, you could put in your e-mail.
But now, with Windows Live Mail, you can't even so much as, for example, invoke the "noshade" option in a horizontal rule. It is a perplexing, frustrating and infuriating backward step in offered functionality.
