For all the rest of you, this has to do with members that post using HTML. 
If you are using fancy fonts (including italics and bold), colors, 
pictures, etc. you are using HTML. The problem is that not everyone can 
read this, and it comes across as pure gobbledegook. For this reason, you 
don't ever want to send messages to the list in HTML or styled text or 
whatever your program calls it.

Each mail program uses different techniques, but you need to locate the 
option that lets you send messages in PLAIN TEXT only. Otherwise, a 
sizeable portion of the readers here can't see what you are writing.
