doing this in some mailers, particularly the 
Microsoft Exchange client, is not easy.  In fact,

   or whatever one you use, and RIGHT click on the entry
   for the f-minor list, and select "properties".

3) Be sure the "Always send in rich text..." box is NOT

4) Click on "send options".  Check the "I want to specify
   the format..." box.   Click "Plain Text/UUEncode",
   and make sure BINHEX is NOT checked.

5) Click OK, Click OK, and exit the address book.
