      Hi Lotta,

      I'm still getting plain text messages. If and when yahoogroups
      forces html on us, I'll be searching for a new mailing list
      provider. I would go without web only and archives before I can
      handle html. I have to use it on my support addresses, but
      personally, I'm with that crowd that says html belongs on the
      web, not in email! ;)

      Yikes! I happened to notice the email weight difference (which is
      why I despise html in email) and saw the new footers. First I
      went to the group settings and it all is the same. You change
      then in your personal settings (Edit Membership) at any group you
      are signed on to. Check the box for "Traditional" under "Message
      Preference." I hope that is all it takes to turn off the html

      I'm off line for a while now and will try to check on it later.
      If the above action turns it off, I'll posy on the other 3 main
      lists. (I don't see "Plain Text" anymore.)

      I can only please one person a day.
      Today is obviously not your day.
      Tomorrow doesn't look good either. 8D
