I think would find that they choose HTML format so that they could
include their banner advertising more effectively with each message.

I guess that's the price you pay for using a "free" service - everything
has a price.

Hmm...this problem seems to be one that's been imposed by egroups in the

changeover to the new service. In the Settings area of the former
I used to be able to select "text-only" and the messages would arrive
without the html tags.

I guess some would call this progress.
