Hey, I'm sorry if I stepped on anyone's toes.  Something changed
and I thought it should be noted that someone noticed.  My choices
had not changed since I started receiving the digests.  I was not
blaming anyone just expressing my opinion.  I don't use Outlook
and never have this was a change made by someone else.  I use
Netscape to read most of my mail and it called the individual
messages "Outlook Express Mail Message".

I have since changed my options to plain text and the last digest
I received was back to the former format.

I certainly did not mean to offend anyone.  I subscribe to this
list for help and I appreciate any that I have received.
