Sorry - I didn't mean to get on anybody's sensitive bits. Unfortunately
  I have to use this address to send HTML email to some
recipients, so I have to remember to set to text mode manually
  when I send to lists. On occasion I forget to change the format. I went
into the address book and changed the SBo address to text only - I 
wonder if it
will obey the setting.
