Receiving Outlook message

I have attached a screenshot of the properties window of a message I have received.   Can you tell me if the message type (plain text) is how the sender is creating the message or is that somehow something in my settings when receiving it.   This is Outlook 2003

It is how the sender sends it.

Based on the email options when you compose a new email you can have it default to plain text html etc.

You receive the email based on how it was sent. Outlook does not convert incoming email formats.

That was what I thought but my vendor keeps telling me they send in html.   But I keep randomly getting some in plain text.

Thanks

I believe they have an Exchange server for their email.

And no, they wouldn't be forwarded.   We do business with them and receive emails at various times of the day.   Most are html, but occassionally they come in plain text.

I would then check with the sender or senders to see what they have defined for the Internet format. If they have HTML for the internet email format also then I would suggest contacting Rackspace and see if they know of anything.

I most certainly does not have anything to do with your setup it is how it is being sent.

No system that I am aware of modifies email they all scan it of course.

I would double check the senders settings. See if they can send you a few test emails to see what conditions cause this.
