    So under Thunderbird the updated news letter looks the same. I copied the HTML out of the message and saved it as an HTML file. The HTML is fine. I'll look at it some more from my end. It sure seems like its a problem with Thunderbird. Just for giggles I'll see if I can send it back up and look at it through my ISP's web based mail.

    BTW I looked at the the newsletter link with with Chrome under Linux and it is fine.

    So I tried running the email through my work email, but it looked the same. I'm assuming that it probably got mangled when I forwarded it from Thunderbird. But I did find this email format validater at https://tools.ietf.org/tools/msglint/ perhaps this will give us some clues. When I run it on the message source it spit this out:

    including MIME, RFC 822, DSN (RFC 1891) and MDN (RFC 2298) elements which has
    be run on the attached message. The result follows:

    Now, you mentioned another thing that might be impacting the look of the newsletter. The recipient email server. If memory serves me right, the first person that complained about this issue was a comcast customer. And your email is also with comcast. If you have another email address, send it to me via email, and I'll edit your records and send the newsletter to your new address, to see how it will come through.

    As for the email format validator, since my email client shows the message as it is supposed to be shown, I do not have the html version of the email. I could generate it somehow, but I won't be 100% if it is what you received. Can you please copy it and email it to me?

    Both links worked for me. I was having troubles using both Firefox and Edge. It still seem to me that since it was only a few of us having problems that it was not a problem on your end. At any rate, did not mean to cause any angst.

    ps - I am OLD enough to remember when if the majority were happy then the minority just had to grin and bear it - why these days it seems as if the entire world has to jump through hoops just to keep a very few happy (safe?).
