I don’t know about you, but I have a great dislike for HTML e-mail which takes extra time to open (as Outlook starts up an instance of the Internet Explorer engine) and is susceptible to going off and downloading images and who knows what else from the web. Well, it turns out that (finally) Microsoft added a “read as plain text” feature into Outlook 2002 SP1 but you need to edit the registry to enable it. See OL2002: Users Can Read Nonsecure E-mail As Plain Text (Q307594).
