Sith is right, jcollins31430, but what do you mean you are sending email from you blackberry using Outlook? . . . Don't understand exactly what you are doing.

Ok, you are using the mobile yahoo site to compose and send the email, not using BIS email? Don't know answer in that case. Is Outlook set to allow and display html, or does it force conversion to text?
