Windows 7: Outlook 2003 Displays one recipient in text only

Outlook 2003 Displays one recipient in text only

G'Day to you all,

I've been having an issue with Outlook 2003. I've had to rebuild my computer, and in doing so, reloaded Office 2003 and I use Outlook as my email reader. For some reason, when Outlook 2003 downloads One (1) particular recipient, it converts their emails to text only. 100's of others come in as HTML and I have no issues with their emails?

This occurred after the rebuild. When I received emails from this person prior to the rebuild their emails came in just fine as HTML. Nothing was changed to the best of my knowledge?

I've gone through just about every setting I can find to try and pinpoint where the problem is, and I cannot find it? I've tried searching through google, and again can't find help? I searched this forum and did not find anything specific to this issue? I've gone on GMail and searched to see if there was a tag, or setting for this person, and still nothing?

Computer:
Home build ASUS Mainboard
AMD Athlon II X4 620
Windows 7 Professional 32bit SP1
Office 2003
AVG 2012 Free Edition (Email Protection Active)

If more info is needed, or anyone knows what the issue may be, I'd really appreciate a fix this as this persons emails are "always" good.

DethanB,

Could it be a coincidence that when you rebuilt your computer that particular person decided to send emails in plain text?
Have you asked the question?

When a sender uses plain text, you should always honour their choice.

It appears.....

No, I contacted this person and inquired if they had done so, since they are the only one that I'm getting plain text messages from, which they confirmed they had not. If I look at this persons emails on the Web Interface in GMail, the are normal HTML Messages. Once I receive them in Outlook, on my computer, they are converted to plain text.

I shouldn't necessarily say they are sent to me as plain text, the Outlook Program is converting the HTML Messages or Data files to Plain Text. So, when this persons message arrives, I see all of the header information, I see all of the HTML Tags, and if it's a data file I see PAGES of converted garbage.

Does this help?


This is what I receive from this person:
