emacs, M$-Word, notepad.  I have issues with all of them, my fingers are
horribly set in the vi way of doing things.  

That horring excuse for an editor in Outlook would offer to quit editing
the msg I was working on and discard the changes when I hit ESC.  I
spent a few hours once, trying to figure out how to get Outlook to use
WinVI32 as it's editor instead of the built-in one or Word.  Never did
find a way to do it.

Now I'm Outlook-free, so things are getting better all the time.
