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,
