RE: HTML -> plain text in Outlook
- I think MS Exchange does play some role. I haven't had this problem until
recently. Of course my company's IT department hasn't run across this
problem before, so hopefully they become familiar with it soon.
The tip regarding the personal address book is useful. Hopefully this
e-mail is now plain text. In Outlook 97, there is no plain text format
menu. Only "Send Options" in the e-mail properties tab.

HTML. I'm guessing that the one to me was the one in HTML, as you and I
have corresponded in that format before, but the one in plain text was the
one to the mailing list. I agree that this is a *VERY* useful tip!

my name was in the To: list. I'm repling to one of the mails, and removing
all but the vim mailing list entry. Therefore, there should only be one
