Thanks Cyndi, that is what I did. However, the problem, as Brad Knowles
suggested, was that I wasn't sending proper HTML formatted emails. I have
tried with Outlook and everything works fine (apart from the footer but I
know there is a FAQ for that).

Now my problem is how do I send proper HTML formatted emails with a
script? If anybody is willing to help me with that please email me, I
don't want to spam the list with OT emails.
