disable the Flash Player ActiveX control in Microsoft Office.

Alternative NoFlash Implementation

On versions of Windows® that ship without Flash Player, an (empty) file %SystemRoot%\System32\Macromed blocks the installation of its ActiveX control and the NPAPI as well as the PPAPI browser plugins instead of only disabling the ActiveX control.

I dislike HTML (and even weirder formats too) in email, I prefer to receive plain text.
I also expect to see your full (real) name as sender, not your nickname.
I abhor top posts and expect inline quotes in replies.
