To which I reply:

Aargh! If I had had any idea I was inflicting such an unreadable message on everyone, I would never have sent it. But that is exactly the evil genius of Microsoft Outlook: I had no way of knowing what my message would look like when received by a non-Microsoft email reader. Naturally, when my own message came back, it looked just fine to me. I'm switching email programs immediately.

Once again, sorry for the hard-to-read waste of bandwidth.
