Outlook incoming emails are opening in .txt format instead of .HTML

Several regular emails from 2 different sites are all of a sudden now opening in a .txt format instead of their usual .html.

My setting for Message Format is currently showing:
"Compose in this message format" = HTML

How do I fix this?
