I've been told mine are sometimes -- but not always -- garbled (it pays to have a husband on the list with a desk next to mine for feedback) - it seems to be the list since I don't seem to have that problem with other postings.

A while back, my messages to the list were coming through jumbled but it sorted itself out (maybe thanks to some tinkering.) I think it’s somehow a list issue, maybe a rich text setting or something, though I’ve never experienced anything like this on lists I’ve dealt with.
