    Greetings, alohaboi !

    Service Pack cause this feature to occur. So you cannot change it unless you uninstall MS Office 2003, SP2.

    The Outlook email client component of Office 2003 comes with spam-filtering functions as standard. SP2 brings improved handling of spam emails sent to an Outlook user's junk mail folder. Junk messages are now rendered as plain text, preventing HTML information from being viewed inadvertently. Links also now disabled in "Junk" email messages with SP2. Both enhancement to Outlook are designed to help prevent phishing attacks.

    Best wishes!
