Rich text or not rich text, that is the question

So, that is good news. Sending a rich text email from gMail does not
prompt those spurious carriage-returns to be added. So, what about
Apple's Mail program on the Mac? I have just set up my gMail account
on my Mac's Mail program, just so I can test this, and the email I am
writing is rich text, in the sense that if I go to the Format menu at
the top of the screen it gives me the option to "Make Plain Text" --
which implies that it must already be in rich text form. But so far I
have not included any italics or bold or any other formatting, so
maybe it will make an executive decision when I hit 'Send' and will
unilaterally send it in plain text form only...
