I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First check you have the latest Service Pack Installed, I seem to remember there was something about Plain Text Emails.

If SP3 is installed and still doesnt help...

Is this PC a Home PC or part of an Office Netwrok
If part of an office network, does it work on other PCs?
If it doesnt there could be a restriction in place, the prevents this use.

If it not, you could try recreating the Outlook Profile.
