Emails from outlook that are scrambled

By dawn.wheat ·
I sent an email to a distribution list announcing an event that I wanted the recipients to attend.
The email when I received it in my yahoo account had mostly illegible text along with the message I was trying to send. I had used the add event tab to have the date and location placed in the email automatically.

this is likely due to the function in Outlook and the calendar from which the event originated being proprietary to Outlook. As such, it won't necessarily translate well to web-based accounts, and sometimes not to other on-board clients.

That seems to take away from the simplicity of using outlook to send emails announcing events like meetings.
