Hi Michael & Welcome,

I'm not a computer whiz, but the folks I know who've had this problem tend
to have it with messages that are sent using HTML formatting rather than
plain text.

Personally, I use plain text for sending all V2020 posts and for reading
them as well.  Perhaps one of our techie Visionaries can provide a better
explanation, but for more information, you might want to check out:

If anyone is interested in learning how to make sure they are sending plain
text messages to V2020, the above link provides instructions for some common
email programs.  If the email program you use isn't included, you might try
posting asking other list members if they know how to do it with whatever
email program you are using.

Note:  this is also likely the explanation for "empty" posts.  The messages
were probably originally sent in HTML and the sender's email program didn't
transmit the plain text part.

Dear 2020 folks,


I just got an off the list email explaining a problem I was worried about
myself:  at least one of my posts just goes horizontal forever for at least
one fellow, although they look fine on my computer.  This is a problem I
have with some of the postings I receive via email and some of the postings
I get from the archives.  Is there an explanation for this and perhaps even
a solution to this problem?  I'm new around here..
