    I am having a problem with incoming mail from my sister, who uses a Mac.
    She uses OS X and Jaguar, I believe.
    At any rate, she sends in high text and I get it as plain text, but when I reply it is in high text... can anyone suggest what the deal is here???
    She has switched to Entourage and it is working just fine, receiving high text..
    What could be the problem with the other ????

    How about if everyone just sends email in plain text. Maybe I've just been on the net too long (I do still consider Pine to be the best email client ever) but things seemed a lot simpler when everything was plain text.

    To answer your question though-- it sounds like you have your email set to view as plain text and send as html. It's a simple configuration issue and has nothing to do with the email going from a Mac to PC.

    I agree! I used plain text for so long because it makes life simpler. But it looks so ugly :(

    High text??? Do you mean rich text? Perhaps your mail client doesn't support rich text, or you have your client set to format incoming email as plain text. If it's the second one, there's probably a setting for this in the application's preferences. I'm not fully understanding you here. Why would your sister having switched to Entourage make a difference in how you receive your email?

    Consider yourself a good Internet citizen. A lot of my PC-using colleagues, friends, and family have fallen in love with IncrediMail. Gee, your email has a pretty animated background with GIF files gobbling up my hard disk space while corresponding no information. Thank you! On an even more serious note, HTML mail is a security risk and is to be discouraged.
