Outlook 2000 Formatting Toolbar greyed out in new message

Running Windows 98SE,Office 97,Outlook 2000. All relevant patches applied except for E-mail security updates. Outlook 97 has never been on machine. When  I create a new message the formatting toolbar in Outlook 2000 is greyed out and inaccessible. Message sends OK, with or without attachments, but I can do nothing to its appearance.

Any ideas?

Thanks for your help.

Hi LaurieR. After creating a new message, hit Format. If "plain text" is selected, this causes the formatting toolbar to be grayed out.

If you want to change your default "send" message type, go to Tools-Options, and then the Mail Format tab.

I think your Outlook, is configured to send text only messages.

try to change the default message format go to:

Options -> Mail Format -> select the correct format
