Subject: [MOD] Using Outlook Express to Post to RAME
Date sent: Fri, 4 May 2001 11:15:01 -0400
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
