This is really strange.  No matter what I do I can't get this to look 
like a normal plain text message!  I've set Options > Format > Plain 
text Only on this one.

It seems to be related to the fact that there are two addresses in the 
original message, the normal redhat.com and a bellsouth for g.  I can 
see white text on black best and normally do that with html but plain 
text messages should come black text on white.  Yours keeps showing like 
the html display.

This should definitely be plain text per the setup!  Although I'm seeing 
wh. on a black field as I type this?
