Topic: [ OT]+Eliminating the HTML (9 msgs / 149 lines)
1) From: Wandering John
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!

Can anybody verify that Outlook XP (not 2003) has a "read email in ASCII
only" option?  I'm considering the upgrade.  Thanks.

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.

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.

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.
