How To Hide Outlook Headers/HTML From E-mail Messages

I have a client who uses Outlook 2000. He called complaining that all of his e-mails have headers showing now. He sees the full headers of all e-mails, and when he uses HTML in a message (or receives a message in HTML format), it shows the HTML code, not what it's supposed to look like. Any ideas? He's also using Windows XP Home, if it matters. Thank you in advance!

Greetings, knowprob !

To hide headers:
1.  Open the e-mail message containing the header you want to hide.
2. On the View menu, click Message Header. Outlook 2000 hides all fields except the Subject line. Outlook 98 and 97 hide all fields except the From line.

To view message in HTML
1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.
2. If you want to change the default indicated in the Send in this message format list, click the format you want.

Sometimes you may want to leave the default setting in place but override it only for a specific message.
* On the Actions menu, point to New Mail Message Using, and then click the format you want to use.

Best wishes!
