Difficult to Make Email Look The Way I Want

    Getting email to look the way you want is, in general, is one of the most
    frustrating things about Outlook. Something as simple as setting a default
    background color, font and font color seems impossible. The limited set of
    themes & stationary are not customizable. Creating and using your own seems
    to have been intentionally discouraged by design. Finally, if you give up and
    settle for included themes or stationary the fancy bullets and horizontal
    lines don't work (appear the same as they do when no theme or stationary is
    applied).

    I've Googled sites that tell you how to work around some of these
    shortcomings (use FrontPage, etc), but why does it have to be this difficult?

    BTW, these annoyances are referring to Outlook 2007 in case anyone didn't
    notice the version info at the bottom of my original post. Some of these
    things were actually a little easier in previous versions of Outlook.
