Send an Email Message in Plain Text

This article applies to: E-lists (Lyris)


Most email clients let you apply formatting to your messages, features likeĀ font choices, size, bold, colors, indents, etc.

Some applications (for example, Lyris ListManager) expect commands sent via email to arrive in plain text. Formatted text is the most common cause of problems when sending commands.
