Sometimes messages do that from me. Outlook takes an original message's encoding and uses it. Since I replied to your message, which was in plain text, it chose plain text. When I make a message from scratch, it chooses plain text. I can't find a way to force it to always do plain text, no matter what. I know where to tell it to do plain text, which is what I did, yet it still does HTML from time to time. If you are referring to one of my emails, I am sorry. Just ignore them, because there is nothing I can do about it :(

Subject: A89: Re: Assembly-89 Digest V1 #864
I politely ask that whoever is using HTML e-mail to stop sending it. I
*really* do not want to start a flame war, but as a subscriber to the
digest version, and I have to sift through all the HTML. My mail reader
has nothing to do with this because mailreaders do not sift through
messages for HTML, so even if I was using a higher quality mailreader
(which I can't for various reasons) it would still be a problem. Below
just is a very small portion of all the HTML I received, so please don't
think that I am nitpicking. This message is so long because I want to
try to deal with the various replies I might receive because of
misunderstanding, and I wouldn't bring this issue up if I wasn't annoyed.
