If you want to make sure no one takes you seriously, Incredimail is a great product. It tacks on animated advertisements to the end of all your messages if you use the free version. Not to mention all the stuipd stationery backgrounds, Incredimail is to email as pink and orange swirled sidewalk chalk is to Shakespeare's quill

I use Incredimail as well. I paid for mine, so there's no advertisements. Stupid stationery is available for those who choose to use it, but it is not required. It's just as easy to send a plain email.
What I like about Incredimail is that it's possible to insert images inline with an email, rather than being forced to send them as file attachments.
There are other reasons I like Incredimail, but the bottom line is that it does what I want done, the way I want it done. Google's tendency to lump emails into "conversations" does not fit this description.

TBird has done that for years...
That may be, but I was doing it years before Tbird was even released.

I suppose Zimbra desktop would be my other choice since it too is cross-platform. OS specific applications are okay, but I prefer productivity apps that look, feel and work the same, no matter if I'm on Linux or Windows.

I found a terrific solution: DOWNGRADE to WLM 2009. Not only does it NOT convert pix to attachments, it also has other features that later versions dropped (e.g., stationery and background colors). The latter aren't important to most people, but I have a friend who is sight-impaired due to a stroke. Having as her default e-mail one with a yellow background and 18pt bold font allows her to see what she's typing.
Microsoft has a history of making "new" versions worse than previous ones. E.g., Vista replacing XP, Office 2007/10 with it's @#$% ribbon replacing Office 2003. I'm going to wait on Windows 8!

Thunderbird will allow this, and it appears Zimbra probably will also. I'm sure there are others.
