This message came in as non-viewable without going into a special view
program. I use a mail viewing function (Pine) on a unix machine. I do
not use any mail programs on my pc. I have to twice select the special
viewer for your mail. Then I have to exit the viewer to get back to my
other mail. I is a bit of a pain and if I am in a hurry, I just delete
the messages which require special handling. I have similar problems with
messages which appear to have been written in html. If we keep our
messages in plain text, everyone will be able to view them easily.
The interesting part here, is that I can't view the message without the
special viewer, but, when I reply and include the message, it appears as
part of the mail (below) with no special function except telling the
system to include it.
Thanks for asking!
