Subject: [MOD] Using Outlook Express to Post to RAME

One of the most common rejections we send out has to do with improper formatting by sending HTML messages to RAME. RAME (like most of Usenet) is a text only newsgroup, and HTML posts are rejected.

So to make things easier for the newbi posters, we have prepared a quick primer on how to successfully post to RAME using Outlook Express.

TURNING OFF HTML

There's a bunch of ways to do this, pick your favorite:

1. ON A MESSAGE-BY-MESSAGE BASIS


When you compose the message, click on "FORMAT" in the menu bar and make sure "PLAIN TEXT" is selected.










2. ON A PER ADDRESS BASIS

Right click on RAME's address book entry and choose "PROPERTIES"

Check the box that says "Send e-mail using plain text only."

3. FOR ALL MESSAGES

Click TOOLS, OPTIONS

Click the SEND tab

If you e-mail us, make sure "Mail Sending Format" is PLAIN TEXT

If you use a news server, make sure "News Sending Format" is PLAIN TEXT.

4. ON A PER NEWS SERVER BASIS

Click Tools, Accounts

Click the NEWS tab

Double click on the server you use to post to RAME

Click the ADVANCED Tab

Put a check box next to "Ignore news sending format and post using:" and select PLAIN TEXT
