To all who use Outlook or Outlook Express. You can go to the "Properties"
window of any entry in your address book, click on the "name" tab and select
the small box in the lower left hand corner that reads "Send e-mail using
plain text only". If you do this for your entry for DJML, it will
automatically send in plain text only.
