Composing messages: A rich-text interface allows rich text, plain text, and HTML editing. See The rich-text editor. You can also add attachments.
Note: Pasting text into the rich-text editor should preserve most formatting, but some types of formatting, such as colored text, may need to be added manually in the editor after pasting.
Message priority: You can set priority levels for messages to distinguish important messages from others.
