Dear Tony and List - I don't know about L-Soft's support for HTML, but I think the problem only occurs with "digest" mode, when then wrapping of multiple messages into a single digest doesn't know what to do with HTML and multipart messages. I switched to receiving individual messages some time ago, and I have no issues with HTML messages send to AUDITORY. Of course, this doesn't address the reasons why digest mode existed in the first place, but email patterns have changed a lot since those days any way. I will inquire of the McGill mail masters to see if they have any advice or solutions. You can switch between "digest" mode and receiving individual messages by visiting your AUDITORY information page at the URL sent when you first joined (or I can regenerate it for you). Best wishes, DAn.
