John, The messages that you are sending are in MIME format, which Booth's
mail reader (MR/2, Booth?  Wow, does THAT bring back memories...)
apparently doesn't understand.  I imagine your posts look a little funny to
anyone getting the digest version of the list, too.  I'm using Outlook
Express, not Outlook, but I think the correction is similar.  Go into your
address book entry for Midrange-l and there should be a box to check saying
something like "Send E-mail using plain text only" - check that box.  Also,
in your global settings (Tools/Options in Outlook Express, probably similar
in Outlook), under Send there is probably a checkbox with verbage to the
effect of "Reply to messages using the format in which they are sent".  It's
normally recommended to have that turned off when participating in mailing
lists, so that if someone inadvertently sends an HTML message to a list you
don't accidentally compound the problem with replies that you make.

Personally, I think Microsoft ought to have a very visible setting somewhere
that says something like "turn off advanced features which cause problems in
mailing lists", but I don't think we'll ever see it.
