Hi Pascal, Just so you know, I appreciate your efforts just as much regardless of format, since my mail reader, like most, is capable of showing the proper format regardless (Mutt in my case). However, I also appreciate that you want to serve the community as well as possible which I think should be applauded too. I seem to recall there's an option in Outlook that allows you to send plain text email, or turn off HTML/rich text, on a per-mail basis. At least there was the last time I used it, probably Outlook 2003 (yikes!) -- under Options, I believe. If anyone here has more reliable help to offer, please have at it. :-) Paul On Wed, Sep 28, 2011 at 05:27:10PM +0000, Pascal Calarco wrote: > Hi George -- > > Thanks for the feedback; I hope you don't mind if I share with the > rest of the FWN team. > > Apologies; I sent this out with Outlook; yep, that's what I have to > use at work.
