Outlook & Outlook Express Display Problems

I need your help again people - I have recently moved my ISP email account to a different computer. The mail programme on the old computer was Outlook Express, but the programme on the new computer is Outlook. Every time I open a mail (even ones in the Sent Folder which I composed in Outlook), there is a little message bar that says "This HTML message contains script which Outlook cannot display. This may affect how the message appears". There is a selector box at the top of every new mail which is set to HTML, but if I open a New (compose) message, it appears to be in Word. I've come across a problem previously with Microsoft Progs where there seems to a whole series of selection points for the same thing - and unless you set them all nothing changes! First I suppose - does the message re HTML matter, and if it does how can I get rid of it?

Hey Jim, depending on your version of Outlook change the message format form HTML to Rich Text and see if this sorts out your issue.
