Hi,
Sorry to bang on about this, but please stop posting to the list in
HTML format.
It is very easy to tweak your mail program to prevent this once and for
all so please spend a couple of minutes doing it.
You can futher info from...
List Rules - http://www.landcruisers.info/lists/list_rules.html
Notes on setting your mail program to send Text only messages (i.e. NOT
HTML formatted): http://www.landcruisers.info/lists/list_nonhtml.html
Here's an example of what the hundred or so people on the Digest get if
you don't follow the rules:

Julian,
Thanks, I don't think I have posted in html recently (except a couple of
weeks ago when I used reply to and didn't notice the original was in html).
I did notice Chas had used HTML (obvious because of the font) commented so
and changed the email to plain text.
No idea how you carry out the back office magic but as I suggested
previously isn't it possible to just bounce HTML back to the sender? This
would also stop people innocently using reply to and sending a html post
without being aware of it and I can't imagine any listers being upset at
having to resend an email in the correct format.
(Made the changes listed some time ago)

Hi Malcolm,
Sorry, I jumped the gun a bit.
THe main culprit is Reno, however if you had set the list email address in
your address book to only receive text you wouldn't have automatically picked
up the html formatting.

Julian,
I didn't know that is was possible to set the list email address in
your address book to only receive text, I have set it up to only send txt
which it does for new email but it appears to follow the previous format for
replies. (Outlook 2003)

Hi Malcolm,
Have you seen the instructions on the site for Outlook? If you follow those
you should be OK.
