Hello Polly in Peru!
I am glad you are enjoying the messages...
Computer programs do act differently and a lot depends on how your
email software is configured...
For example, I just checked, and your email address is getting normal

should be able to view the diagrams inside your email messages
visually, if your email software is setup to accept receiving
attached files in MIME format...so you may want to check your email

Meanwhile, there are two other ways to see the diagrams...you can
access the Archives to read the messages and click on a link to view

SignWriting List Archives
