    "" Due to an increased network threat condition, the Defense Department is
    blocking all HTML-based e-mail messages and has banned the use of Outlook
    Web Access e-mail ""

    Why people insist on using markup in ordinary everyday email I really
    don't know - email is a plain text medium.

    Why the USA's DOD continues to use Micro$oft's software is simply insane
    - they have already suffered some of the consequences of using M$ Windows
    & MS Office earlier this year!

    Banning markup in emails is surely only a token step towards network
    security. At least it is a move in the right direction.
