Plain text in Outlook Express

  PeterPaul 10:23 12 Feb 2004

When I set my READ preferences for email in Outlook Express to plain text by checking the box under OPTIONS/READ, it keeps reverting to html mail by unchecking the box. I have pressed OK, pressed APPLY, have closed and restarted OE -nothing seems to help.

Can anybody advise me?

If you look up Plain Text Formatting in OE's Help files and then click on "To change the font, style, and size of text" you should find out where you are going wrong.

Thanks Stuartli.

My problem is not with sending html, it is with receiving it. OE provides a specific option to read messages in plain text, even if sent in html.

There is a tick box for this, but OE won't hold the tick.
