The above message was generated by your mail program, not the mailing 
list or the receiving client.  This is because your mail program knows 
that it is set to send e-mail in a format incompatable with internet and 
usenet conventions.

It is unfortuate that it is sending that notice out to users implying 
that there is something wrong with their mail system, when it should be 
presenting you with a warning that you are sending in an incompatable 
format for internet e-mail.

Please fix the settings of your mail program.

Usenet convention and the convention for this list is to only post in 
plain text.

HTML format is not compatable with the digesting and archiving format of 
this list and most other mailing lists.  It more than triples the size 
of the message and presents the readers of the digest mode of mailing 
list with pages and pages of unreadable trash to read through.

Plain text is the only form of e-mail communication that is universally 

If you do not know how to set your mail program to plain text, and it's 
online help is deficient, then a search of the internet or contacting 
the vendor of the mail program should produce the instructions.

Thank you,
