Hi Steve

No idea if this has anything to do with it or not, but you are asked to
configure your emailer to *not* send html mail. Configure Outlook to
send plain text only (generally) or set it up to send plain text only to
r-help if you really want to send html-mail to others. It's been a long
while since I used Outlook/Windows, but IIRC you can set this up
somewhere amongst the myriad of prefs in Outlook.
