[Mailman-Users] Message Body missing from Yahoo Mail users

So as you said earlier, forcing my Yahoo users to select Digest only
with plain text should get them around this problem?

My list only has a few members in this boat.   And I need to have both
header and footers so the older members and not so computer elite
members understand they are part of a CC list and that the e-mails are
not directed at them, but a group as a whole.

Thanks again for the info.
