I have a message for which the sender got this report:
Our virus detector failed to completely analyse a message you sent:-

If you are using Microsoft Outlook, we strongly recommend you change your

1) Click on the "Tools" menu and choose "Options..."
2) Go to the "Mail Format" tab
3) For message format, select "HTML" or "Plain text"
4) Click OK

want to send it to the list).
