I've started having the following problem within the last 60 days with no software or configuration change except possibly Microsoft updates to Windows 7 ort Outlook 2003. Someone posted this problem 3/29/11, but that post got no replies.


Description:
--------------
Certain emails forwarded to me are not being recognized as HTML by Outlook. The bad messages show up as plain text, with all the route headers showing, and usually include blocks of characters in MIME format.

This problem appeared suddenly in emails from several people who foreword stuff they think I'm interested in. I've checked with a few of these people and confirmed that they have made not changes at their end, and are using the same system and mailer that they did when I didn't have this problem.

The very first thing I did was check Outlook Tools -> Options -> Email options and confirm that "Read all standard mail in plain text was NOT checked. It wasn't and isn't. That procedure is the only thing I could find suggested for this problem when I searched for a solution. Please not that neither me nor the senders are using Exchange.

Any suggestions or ideas would be greatly appreciated. An example message is shown below my systems information.

Not much on the science or safety of thorium, but still of interest.

An article from a year ago in the Britain's newspaper "The Telegraph", concerning Liquid Thorium Flouride reactors and China's committing to develop it. I urge you to read it.

Thanks for replying, but the messages are not in the Junk Email folder, they are either in the Inbox or a sub folder of the Inbox having been moved there by one of my rules.

Then all I can suggest is you run Office Diagnostics from within Outlook:
Help >> Office Diagnostics

If that doesn't fix the problem, then a more drastic method might, which is removal & re-install of Outlook.
Remember to make a backup copy of outlook.pst before removal, though that usually isn't necessary since the file
is in your user folders, but better play it safe just the same.

First, enable "Show hidden files, folders and drives" in Control Panel >> Folder Options.
Then navigate as below to find outlook.pst:

C:\Users\<your account name>\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook\outlook.pst
