I can think of several others - yet I use gmail, because it's so
convenient. Some of this can be mitigated by using a POP3/IMAP client
instead of the web interface.

1) can't put a graphic in-line with text

2) forwards and replies *ruin* html-formatted emails

3) message threading seem to be based on the subject line, not the
message-id - this one is actually the most frustrating one for me.
