=======================================/

This is often caused by sending the mail in Outlook Rich Text Format, and
the recipients cannot read that format.

See the following MSKB article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278061

This article involves sending as Plain Text, likely because it assumes that
you're using Rich Text because you don't want to use HTML. Using HTML
format for outgoing messages should also resolve the issue.
