	The configuration you have shown us has nothing to do with the 
sending of HTML e-mail.

	Try going to the web admin interface for the list, then go to the 
"Content filtering" page.  Look at the first radio button, and see if 
it is set to "Yes" or "No".  If it is set to "Yes", look at the two 
fields below.  Normally, the upper field is empty (labeled 
"filter_mime_types"), and the lower field has a few entries.

	If that's true for you, then make sure that the lower field 
contains at least the following lines:


	Also look at the radio button below the second field (labeled 
convert_html_to_plaintext), and make sure that it is set to "No".
