    After applying office SP3 I can no longer view email in HTML. All email is viewed as plain text. Really a drag trying to read my ezines.

    Any suggestions how to fix this?

    Thanks

    Go to Tools --> Options --> Read. Un-check the box "Read all messages in plain text".

    I fixed the issue. Works for Outlook 2002. Here's the fix in case this crops up again:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\*Software\*Microsoft\*Office\*10.0\*Outlook\*Options\*Mail.
    Find "ReadAsPlain".
    Hit Enter.
    Double-click the newly created ReadAsPlain value.
    Enter "0".
    Click OK.
    Close registry editor.

    Always backup the registry prior to tweaking it.
