I have recently found that all my incoming emails do not contain the message in the body of the email but it is in an ".htm" attachment. I have not cnged any of my email settngs and canot understand why this should suddenly happen. I should appreciate enlightenment and advice on how to stop it.

Some email programs let you send mail as:

- HTML only
- HTML and Plain Text
- Plain Text only

If the messages you're receiving are HTML only, and your program is set to read mail in plain text only, the messages could be blank with the content as an HTML attachment. Check in your email program's settings that it isn't configured to "Read all messages in plain text".
