    I have an irritating problem with XP, latest update and Office 2007. As secretary for a golf league I send out info, Xcel, Word and emails to 2 distribution lists in my Outlook. 1 is about 56 people and the other 15. Lat year and this year I have sent emails to people and had garble. Usually the message goes too, but not always. Interestingly, some email accounts get it OK without a problem and some donít. See an example of the garble below.

    I am on the distribution list for the email and this last time, with no attachments, mine came back in the Junk mail folder.

    Verizon of course denies everything and says it is an Outlook fault.

    Last year I had email as HTML, this year it is Plain Text.

    I am not sure but I have a nagging thought that 2 distribution list added together, either both To: or To and CC. Do have the problem.

    Any help and rather explicit directions would be appreciated.

    Hmmm, I can't figure out what that says. Are you saying the garbled text is inserted into the message, replaces the message, or is added as an attachment?

    Hi,
    The problem is both added characters and garbage instead of. Often people will get the garbage then the message in correct form. Sometimes, I think it is ggjust the garbage and if there is an attachment, it can be 100's of lines. Interestingly, I got a reply back to complaining about it with the attachment put back in. Seems odd that an attachment would get into the body.

    Again, odd that different mail systems get it or not.
    Regards,
