plain text

Having selected plain text, as per PC Advisor page 96, I now have a attachment clip shown with almost all my received mail? Why is this? (Win XP/SP2 and Outlook Express 6)

Thanks to mag for XP SP2 CD.

Where are the answers?! I'd like to sort this out too.

Dont know where answer is and not too good at this but basically as I understood it "e mail can get forwrded as an attachment even if you dont realize it, in HTML the e mail runs as one long message when it is actally a message plus attachments. In Plain Text the e mails appear as
attachments which is what they are."
So to see the fancy bits sent within a message you would go to HTML thus opening attachments?
Hopefully someone can explain it better than me, I can see the reasoning but no good at passing it on

Thanks, Highside for your reply. Yes, I see that the attachment is just the same message but in fancy type - bit irritating though as I'm never sure whether it's just the message again, an interesting picture attachment, or a virus!!

Did you find out if there was any way of stopping it?

No, if I am happy about the message and want to view it then the Outlook Exp VIEW menu allows you to view an individual message in HTML.
