    Try this:-

    OPen Tools menu and click Options
    On the Mail Format tab, look at "Compose in this message format"
    If it is set as plain text, both outgoing and incoming messages will use this format.... change it to either Rich text or HTML format

    Also, if Word is turned off as the email editor, incoming formatted messages may not show the formatting used..... tick the box to use word as the email editor.

    Oddly enough, that worked.

    I have always had it set send messages in Plain Text. BTW, I'm still receiving messages in their sent format after resetting this back to Plain Text.

    Strange that "Compose in this message format" would have anything to do with receiving messages, but whatever works...

    Thanks
