I must have this version of Eudora configured differently than the
one at home and the one at the lab. I just found an unread HTML
message from you in my Trash folder, along with one from Rima.

Unless you're actually using non-ASCII formatting (putting a word in
italics or in red type or something), all choosing HTML does is add
extra characters to your post (in the HTML tags) that humans can't
read and cause some mailreaders to skip the message. If you hadn't
asked, I wouldn't even have looked in my Trash folder before emptying
