I finally ditched all my NeXT Mail mailboxes around 10.2, but until that point Apple Mail could read (but not compose) NeXT's rich text mail format (a tar'ed rtfd sent as a MIME part) too. However, as for why TextEdit's default format is RTF (when it should obviously be plain text), I have no idea.
