I tried Thunderbird years ago and never liked it, I'm willing to give it
another go and see what its like again. Hopefully it won't mind importing my
4GB outlook.pst file :)

Yeah, I use Gmail too, the ASF mail filtering system is another reason for
me not to use HTML as it increases SPAM score. Other users on some lists
also have problems posting with Gmail due to the headers it sends out. The
main reason however remains readability for other users and the archives,
which are - as I've grown to understand over the years, more and more
important as projects evolve.

Absolutely :)

Yes, I agree, I'll do this tomorrow against our v13 and v20 if no objections
come in. I did look to see if using xpointer with xinclude would solve your
problem, but it does not.
