I use gMail and pretty sure that's the cause of the problem.  I'l check to
see if it has any of the options you mentioned but I don't remember seeing
them.  However, I do see a "Remove Formatting" option in the toolbar when
sending a message, so here's a code snippet pasted in below with the remove
formatting thing done to it, please let me know if this comes though OK.


put empty into tArray

      put x into tArray["PropertySequence"]

      put tGroupID into tArray["GroupID"]

      put tPropertyID into tArray["PropertyID"]
