Outlook instead of Outlook Express implies that there is may be an 
Exchange Server involved.

For Outlook connected to Exchange, there is a tab buried somewhere 
called something like "Internet Connector"  The settings to send plain 
text are on that tab.

Also if you are using any word processor to compose messages, Outlook is 
reported to send in HTML format only, and will ignore all other settings 
  to the contrary.

The adminstrator of this list can be reached at 
samba-vms-admin(at)lists.samba.org and can possibly explain why the 
mailing list is rejecting your e-mails.

Your previous post was in plain text, and that was appreciated thanks,
