[lots more HTML junk]

Ken, this is what I see when I read your emails. Could you please find 
the setting in your email client to send plain text as well as HTML (or 
what is wrongly called "rich text" by some email clients) and turn it 
on? Unfortunately I've never used EarthLink Zoo Mail 1.0, so I can't 
tell you how.

Not only is HTML-only posting considered rude by millions of people, but 
it's also counter-productive. Pure HTML is one of the stronger 
indications of Spam email, almost as strong as mentioning that word 
that starts with V and sounds like Niagara Falls, and so chances are 
good that some of your emails are being flagged as spam by anti-spam
