I don't have the problem with HTML that most seem to because my mail program strips it all for me (Ximian Evolution 1.3) but the use of receiving folders really surpasses the Digest in that it is there in the chronological order when I'm ready to read it. And if I don't get on line for a day or so, then its sitting on my server waiting on me. Converting people to appropriate behavior generally requires a social action. Its like; How many psychiatrists does it take to change a light bulb? Only one, but it really has to want to change! Maybe we should build a HTML Rouges Gallery? :O) Try the folders - it makes everything - Groovy! On Sat, 2004-05-01 at 08:41, Jeff Wikstrom wrote: <Snip>
Can anybody verify that Outlook XP (not 2003) has a "read email in ASCII only" option? I'm considering the upgrade. Thanks. john Dr. Zeus Web Development "content without clutter"http://www.DrZeus.net<Snip>http://sweetmarias.com/maillistinfo.html#personalsettings
John, XP comes with Outlook Express 6.0 and OE6 has a "read all email as plain text" option under tools/options/read But I don't know if it strips the html - but think so. John - the older variety. On Sat, 2004-05-01 at 13:14, john wrote: <Snip>

Outlook XP (2004) has an option to "read all standard messages in plain text." Here's the related help file info: If you are concerned about potential viruses (virus: A computer program or macro that "infects" computer files by inserting copies of itself into those files. When the infected file is loaded into memory, the virus can infect other files. Viruses often have harmful side effects.) contained in HTML formatted messages, you can have Microsoft Outlook automatically display messages that you open in plain text instead. However, reading messages in plain text does not provide full protection against viruses or scripts (script: A type of computer code used to perform tasks on Web pages, such as incrementing a "number of visitors" counter each time there is a new visitor. Web scripts can be written in several script languages. Scripts do not need to be compiled to be run.) in e-mail messages. Bill

Hi Ken, I don't think that security is the issue in this thread. Some people have trouble with the digest version of the list as some of the html gets messed up in it. At 04:40 PM 5/1/2004 -0500, you wrote: <Snip>
