View Full Version : HTML emails arriving as plain text

04-02-2018, 11:02 AM
Just the last couple days I'm finding that all emails are arriving as plain text. This is a real nuisance as much of my email is newsletters, etc. and I'd like to have this capability restored.

I'm using Mozilla Thunderbird with Windows 8.1. Have certainly ticked the box for sending HTML emails but just figure out what to check on so I receive them OK. I certainly haven't been messing about with the workings of the computer so don't know where or how to restore this feature. There was a T'bird update (to 52.6) but that was back on 25 January

Any help or advice would be appreciated, thanks.

Try this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1097323 It tells you how to set html "From the main menu bar: View (Alt-V) - Message body as - Original HTML"

Terry Porritt, thank you so much, for the very simple answer and for the promptness of your reply. I had looked through several forums, googled my problem in various ways, but hadn't found that one. I hope you have a great Sunday despite the weather.
