If you are using italics it's likely your message is sent in either
HTML format (using Mozilla or Thunderbird) or RTF format (using Apple
Mail). Plain text means really no formatting at all.
That said I haven't noticed HTML tags in your recent messages (but I
haven't watched closely). I think the problem is especially annoying
for people receiving the list messages in digest format, or looking at

In Thunderbird you set up the sending format in two locations:
- On a per account basis. Select an account, go to Edit/Properties and
then, for each account, to Composition & Addressing. There, you have a
checkbox "Compose messages in HTML format" (checked by default, I
think). Uncheck it.
- On a recipient basis. Go to Thunderbird/Preferences/Composition, then
go to Send & HTML Options and click the button "Send Options".
In Mozilla the situation is practically the same:
- Identical for the per account setting.
- For the per recipient setting, go to Mozilla/Preferences/Mail &
In Apple Mail go to Mail/Preferences/Composing, there is a scroll-down
Format menu with choices "Plain Text" and "Rich Text". Go for Plain.
