I tried to install Office 2010 on my XP computer alongside my Office 2003 and Outlook started crashing. It always started 2010.
After various tests, I removed Outlook 2010, repaired my Outlook 2003 install and everything went fine... apart that all my incoming emails are converted to either Plain Text or Rich Text at the moment I read them.
I can choose either Plain or Rich Text by using the Tools / Options / Preferences / email options / Read all standard email in plain text
but if I do that, ALL incoming emails get converted to plain text, including HTML formatted emails.
If I uncheck "Read all standard email in plain text", everything appears Rich Text even if the original email was plain text. I want to read plain text emails as plain text because I need to read some lists of numbers in (aligned) columns and I want to read HTML/Rich Text emails in their original format as well because it's unreadable otherwise...
Is there a "Don't do anything clever" setting?
I am confused...
