What is AerialPro?

AerialPro is a professional forum dedicated to the discussion of all aspects of Professional Aerial Photography.

Why Must I Format My Posts as Plain Text?

Post are restricted to a Plain Text Format to prevent the spread of a virus via the list. Although the default setting for many e-mail programs is mixed text/HTML the format is unsafe and can harbor unseen attachments.

How Do I Format My Posts as Plain Text?

First There is a distinction between the text displayed in the body of the message and the way the E-mail is formatted. The issue is not the message but the way the message is formatted or "packaged" for delivery.

Each program is slightly different. In General you need to find the option which allows you to select how the e-mail is formatted. Usually its under the preferences or options tabs on the tool bar. Use help and ask "how to format mail"

For Outlook or Outlook Express   Click Tools on the toolbar. Click Options on the drop down menu, then click the Send Tab. This should bring up a menu with mail formatting options. Click the box marked "Plain Text". Be sure to click "apply" before you close the window. You can check individual messages by clicking Format on the toolbar that appears in the message window.

For AOL or CompuServe  At first glance, it may look a bit complicated, but after you've done it a couple of times, you'll find it's pretty easy, I think. Here's the "recipe" for posting in plain text using AOL version 6 software on a PC (1) First, be sure your font is set to Arial 10, the AOL default. (2) Then compose your message using only Arial 10 -- no bold, no italics, no other fonts, no other sizes. (3) After composing your message, type Control-A to select everything in your message. Then right-click anywhere in the message itself -- a pop-up menu will appear. Move the cursor to "text" and another menu will appear; move the cursor to "normal" and click on it. (4) Send the message. One more note -- if you use the signature feature, make sure your signature also complies with the above."
