Email client for Formatting and IMAGES

Posted on 2010-01-09

I am looking for an email client that works well for formatted mail, especially embedded images.
We are working against Gmail l (IMAP).

Ive tried Thunderbird, but it seems like it easily loses content when saving.
Also the formatting is not so powerful, for example I haven't figured out how to scale horizontally by percentage and keep the proportions of images.

Windows 7 without Outlook.  The best would be one that also works on the Mac.

Early answer (today) is rewarded.

Is your problem with outgoing images or received images?
And images in Thunderbird html messages is very easy to keep proportions, just Insert the Image, give it it's Alternate text, select the Dimensions tab, select custom Size and make sure Constrain is checked, before modifying the size of the image, however, if you actually want the image resized forever, you should resize it outside of Thunderbird before sending it.

mtz1of4 the ratio problem was with percentage ( '%' click pixels and replace with '%')

I see now,
it's not actually %,
% of window,
which really does mess things up, doesn't it?
however,  I did notice that when I inserted in image in my email, i could still just grab the side or corner of the image and resize it to my desired size, without manually adjusting the image properties as noted above.  When using the corners, it is resized proportionally.

Didn't get around to try it, but I think it is a good answer.

The idea is that it adapts to the area available in the mail client
