This can be checked/set from the toolbar at the top via the drop-down box
next to the Compose in this mail format section displayed using:
Tools->Options->Mail Format




A picture may be worth a thousand words, but HTML adds far more than a
thousand bytes to an email.

Hi Steve

No idea if this has anything to do with it or not, but you are asked to
configure your emailer to *not* send html mail. Configure Outlook to send
plain text only (generally) or set it up to send plain text only to r-help
if you really want to send html-mail to others. It's been a long while since
I used Outlook/Windows, but IIRC you can set this up somewhere amongst the
myriad of prefs in Outlook.
