ouch. Yeah, so it does. Actually, our  preferred mail clients are tkrat

Netscape's mail client uses the same font as the fixed width browser font,
I believe

On a 15" monitor, the recommended resolution is 800x600. In windows or
linux, you'll find yourself needing good eyesight from time to time if you
choose 1024x768

I know for a fact that xfmail can do this. Perhaps tkrat can too.

Perhaps we should look into the idea of making these mail programs more
prominent ( ie give them desktop icons ) to make it clear that they are
our "preferred" choices.
