I've been lurking here for a while, but this is my first post and it's a
question;
When I (try) to read messages I see a lot of code and other gobbly-gook.
Sometimes the actual reply is hard to find. Is this normal, or am I doing
something wrong.

it's not you, it's just one of the things you'll have to put up with.
Or...you can do what i did after seeing the same codes on my yahoo
browser. i switched over to G-mail for this list. works great. pretty
user friendly, and mainly, no more codes! If your interested, I'll
send you an invite. You have to be invited to get in the system, I
guess that it's to make you feel special. You will have to re-sign up
at the Sweet Maria's website for this list, with your 'new' e-mail
address, and it's relatively painless. Then, once G-mail is up and
running, you can unsubscribe from your earthlink address, and it goes
back to normal. It's free. That means adds appear on the right side of
your browser window, you learn to ignore them.

Unless he's set for the digest. In which case that won't help.
If you're getting the digest instead of the individual messages, the 
HTML messages are a nuisance. Your best bet is to change your 
subscription to get the individual messages and set up a mail handling 
rule in your email client (Outlook Express, Mac) to file the homeroast 
mail in a separate folder. There's a URL at the bottom of each message 
that points to instructions for changing your settings. Outlook users 
on the list may be able to help you set up the mail handling rule if 
you need help.

If you're reading individual messages and not the Digest version, and 
getting codes, your email reader may be at fault.
I use Mozilla Thunderbird - its free, it works well, it lets me build a 
rule to immediately move coffee list messages to my "coffee" folder, and 
it filters out junk mail into the junk folder, and learns to do that 
better as you use it.

Welcome to the world of the delurked.  Isn't it bright up here?  I
have tried the digest, individual message and Gmail methods of getting
these great emails and love the Gmail.  It has saved me a ton of time.

There's another possibility, too - he might want to reset his options to receive messages in plain text, instead of in MIME format. (This might save the others amongst up from having to put up w/ extra crap in their msgs, too.) Easiest way to do this is to follow the "Home Coffee Roasting Mailing List" link on the SM page, then follow the directions in the middle of the page (for setting not to receive msgs, or switch to digest form, or whatever)... I just did this, myself, since I'm leaving town for a while and didn't want hundreds of msgs in my mailbox when I got back; I switched to digest form, so I'd still get them, but not in such huge numbers.

Ginny, Happy Turkey Day to you! I'm just thankful to be home this year
( I missed 2 Thanksgivings and 2 Christmas's in a row). Tonight my
wife & I are enjoying Cappo's made with the CoE #12 that I got from
SM's with my Rocky. i ordered the CoE # 19, and Tom was in HI. Honest
mistake. I LOVE this stuff! Wow is all my wife said, not too mild, but
the body is velvety smooth. So, I'm gonna get more probably 5 lbs.
See, like mind readers they gave me what I needed, not what I thought
I wanted, and I'm so glad to get my share of some really great coffee.
