That's really wierd

I have exactly the same setup here -- Thunderbird and IrfanView. I have posted 
map images, screen shots, waterfall images, etc many times on the Cross-Country 
APRS Messenger list dozens of times.

However, even though I have "Compose as HTML" enabled in Thunderbird and use a 
proportional font, everything I post to APRSsig comes back to me via the 
remailer devoid of all formatting (bold, italics, different point sizes,etc)  
in a monospaced Courier 10 TTY font.

As a result, I had assumed that it would be impossible to embed graphics, if 
even text wasn't preserved.
