You guys should get out of the dark ages and use a modern mail client. Then
it won't matter!
I won't name names, but the one I use is popular, has a web front end, keeps
all of my mail around in a searchable format (no need to waste your time
generating a word doc), squashes out quoted fragments of the previous
messages (puts them behind a -Show Quoted Text- link), and rhymes with
"female". It took me a while to figure out what you guys were even
complaining about :-)
