Hi,
I just had a new hard drive installed and when they re-installed my Windows XP, I got all the updates. I am a member of a Yahoo group and when I try to reply to a message it is returned telling me that I can not send HTML or other formats and that I can only send plain text. How did this setting, etc get changed and what can I do to fix it so I can send messages to my yahoo group.
thank you.

Is there a way to set Outlook (2002) to send Plain Text Emails through a certain account?

I just started a work at home position, and they like any emails that are sent through their accounts to be plain text. I've already set it so that if I am sending an email to 'so and so' it will send it in plain text. However, there are times I will be emailing customers, and I obviously don't have their email addresses ahead of time. Besides manually changing it to plain text, is there a way to set the work accounts to only send plain, without changing my personal accounts?

Thanks,
Erin

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum. I couldn't find "software" or "other problems".

I've tried dozens of programs. I've websearched for hours. I now come to you on bended knees.

First problem: I want to be able to set a hotkey, that inserts a pre-defined line of text into any text editor. I want to do a bunch of different ones. Say, ALT+SHIFT+D = [email protected], and ALT+SHIFT+C = I love you too, honey. I want to be able to do this so I don't have to get carpal tunnel typing in the exact same same word or phrase hundreds of times a week. I couldn't find a program that worked like this, or I couldn't figure out how to make it work (like AutoHotKey... I read the first page of their tutorial three times and each time I needed an aspirin afterwards), because I am not a propeller head and thus incapable of wrapping my mind around any language that isn't the king's English. :)

Second problem: I want to be able to copy plain text and paste as plain text, but I do not want to CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+C or WINDOWS+V. Big no. I just want to CTRL+C, CTRL+V like I've done my entire life. Like I've said, I tried a bunch of them, and the few that let you choose the hotkey, for some unfathomable reason pout and stick their noses in the air when you ask them politely to set it to CTRL+C or CTRL+V.

Thank you and have a great week!

Answer:Is there a missed call/text reminder available for the Lumina 640 xl?

Missed calls and texts will show up in the notification center

On top of that, if you pin the "phone" app tile to the startscreen (I think it alread is by default) and you missed a call, the tile will show you the number 1. If you missed two calls, you'll get a "2" on the tile.. Same goes for texts

If you use HTML email, it is easier for spammer to tell if you viewed the email. That way they know they have a valid email address.

I just created a text file (.TXT) in Notepad (expecting it to be plain text) and emailed it so I could pick it up on my Nexus 7 tablet. None of the text editors on the tablet can interpret the file (I've tried several times now, including some old .TXT files).
On investigation it seems that Notepad doesn't handle plain text at all - it allows formatting (fonts, bold, italics etc.).
Yet all the searches Ive done on the Internet say that Notepad does not support formatting, only plain text.
I'm using W7. But I've also tried XP - same again.
Am I going mad?

Answer:Am I going mad? Can't create plain text in Notepad

I think you may be using WordPad instead of NotePad. WordPad supports formatting and saves the file as RTF. Your tablet should have software that supports such files if you have a text editor on board.

Hi,I'm having a difference of opinion concerning the spreading of viruses. I am a member of an internet based club that uses Yahoo! for discussion, postings etc. The moderator believes that because Yahoo! strips out all attachments & uses only plain text, this makes it virtually impossible for me to receive a virus. I completely disagree, especially as web address & email address links can be activated.Who's right, or are we both wrong?Cheers.

Answer:Viruses- can they be spread in plain text?

plain text is safe because it contains no code or active contect - hence their OE setting for security. Email and web addresses cannot be activated in plain text in emails as there is no hyperlink - you would have to copy and paste the text to a browser / email program.Some twisted bored spotty kid is probably working on it though...

Could someone explain to me in simple terms what exactly HTML is in the context of Outlook Express 6 using XP ?In my hobby of Genealogy I send and receive a lot of files as attachments, text, photos and charts. I am irratated by those who send me an E-Mail in reply with their attachment as an Icon in the Subject column at the head of the mail and the same thing is repeated in the body of the message. Whether this add times to download the Mail I do not know. I now hang my head in shame as I have just realised that is exactly as I have been sending as a Mail to them ! So going into OE>Tools>Options I see I have the chance to change the basis of outgoing mail from HTML to Plain Text and when I do this the Send Picture With Message automatically greys out. It seems logical to me I should alter the option to Plain Text but I am not sure if it will affect anything other than the bells and whistles of HTML, whatever they might be.Thanks for any advice.

Answer:What is HTML versus Plain Text

As you have realised, HTML is with all the fancy bits on, plain text is just that. Even though you cannot send pictures with the message, you can still send them as attachments.Note: if your recipient has his machine set up as plain text, it doesn't matter how fancy and decorated you send your message - it will be received plain thus, you would be wasting all your efforts.Most businesses are set to receive in plain text to lessen the possibility of virus transmission.I always have mine as plain text and sent anything else as an attachment which can then, if necessary, be easily virus checked at the other end before opening.Brian

You either lost your PDF reader, or somewhere down the line, Windows somehow got its wires crossed, lost its association with it and now sends it to Wordpad instead.Wordpad can't open a pdf and never could.You need pdf software to be installed.Commonly, Adobe Reader is used for this purpose.http://www.adobe.com/uk/products/re...Personally I prefer Sumatra PDF; No adware or sponsored crap - much smaller faster and lighter - (plus you can read e-books on it as well as pdf docs).https://kjkpub.s3.amazonaws.com/sum...For now: Assuming you have Adobe Reader installed. Right click your file; Select, 'Open with'. Is Adobe Rdr in the list?If so click on it and your document will open properly. You may have to go through the 'make my default' process to make the association automatico nce more..If for some reason you no longer seem to have a PDF reader, either go to Adobe's site to download the latest version:http://www.adobe.com/uk/products/re...or try SumatraPDF, above.

I'm using Outlook 2003. Sometimes, when I reply to or forward a message, the format changes from "HTML" or "rich text" to "plain text", thus losing all colour and font information.

Does Outlook have an option to prevent this?
 

Answer:Outlook switches to plain text

The format is based on the senders options in the received email.

Remember that if the sender has chosen plain text, even if you respond in HTML it will probably be stripped out at their end.

I had a Rule in Outlook to send unwanted mail to Outlook's Junk E-mail folder - these were the ones beilng changed.

When I created my own folder and changed the Rule to match it was OK.

It now looks like irrespective of whether you tick the box or not, Outlook changes the view to Plain text on anything it puts in the Junk folder.

Hello there, hope you can help.

I am running WIn98 (Dont laugh!! lol) and Outlook Express and I have quite a few Yahoo Groups that I run where members can send me email from.

The problem is that I want to be able to have the option of reading any email that arrives in my Outlook Express box as a plain text file, the reason for this is as you know, viruses etc can travel in so many forms and this would be easier for me do without the disadvantage of possible attacks.

I thought it would be as easy as a Read As Plain Text in the Read option but I dont appear to have one.

If it's not possible that way, is there a add on for Outlook Express that will do the job.

All the best.

Richard

I've been doing a bit of researching on storing login data securely and obviously the last thing you want to do is store the data in plain text. As I logged on to mint.com today I realized that in order to connect and download data from other financial institutions they must first give them the user's login data. I'm assuming that since not everybody uses the same method of encryption, they can't just send them their user's hashed password, but plain text or just using two way encryption. My question is how do they securely store this data if they are relying on two way encryption methods and is it possible to cheaply do myself?

I am looking to find out how to convert analogue into readable digital plain text.

For example, i want to record an analogue signal from a dialup internet connection then convert it later into text on the computer.

I'm wondering if someone could point me into the right direction as to what hardware/software can do this for me.
Thank you
 

Answer:Analogue to digital (plain-text) converter

Lets see if I have this right. You want to record the screech and other audio noise from a dial up connection. Is that what you're saying? Then you want to convert that noise into readable text? Well there are lots od applications that do that now, analog to digital, cell phones, cameras and the like but I don't know if there is one piece of hardware/software that will do both the conversion and then transform that to readable text. You can get something like this: http://www.amabilidade2002.com/toslink2.htm but how to get it in a readable format's another matter.

By the way, welcome to the board.

Is it possible to have Outlook pick a signature to use based on the email style formatting (HTML or Plain Text)?

For example if it was HTML the company logo will show, if it isn't the company name will be written in plain text.
 

Answer:Outlook Signatures for Plain Text and HTML

Yes, it generates 3 different files. <signature name>.htm, <signature name>.rtf, and <signature name>.txt. The appropriate file is used depending on the format of the message you send. Check %appdata%\Microsoft\Signatures.

My dad recently got a new laptop to replace his five year old beast. On that five year old beast is thousands upon thousands of very important business emails and legal documents. Naturally, he needs to have access to these emails.

Due to his concerns about getting his new laptop up and running, I didn't get to do the logical thing and transfer his old emails and settings over to his new laptop before he started using it. Now, it's been over a month and his new laptop is quickly accumulating new piles of vital emails.

I need to find a way for him to read his old emails quickly and easily.

He uses Microsoft Outlook. I've got the original computer with all the emails on it as well as his new computer. Can I import his old email into Outlook on his new computer without losing any of his new email or overwriting his new settings? Failing that, is there a way for me to view his emails, as saved by Outlook in .dbx files, in plain text?

Note: this isn't a situation where I can just try something and hope it works. My dad's a lawyer and losing a single email can be roughly equivalent to the end of the world. So I'm not going to do anything experimental like trying to import his old emails just to see if it works unless someone knows for sure that it will.
 

Answer:Read emails in plain text without Outlook

Ah I was going to aim you at a small app that was free but now costs $5 called DBExtract as it will do exactly what you need.

http://www.oehelp.com/DBXtract/Default.aspx

it recovers the emails into a text file, sadly leaves the header and footer info ( email server info etc in the text file )


Worth a look at the app anyhow, their maybe an older free version still knocking around on the net.

I am asking this on behalf of a friend. She says:

I am running Windows XP on a stand alone PC. I have recently bought and installed Office XP Professional.

Until now I have used Outlook Express for all my e-mail. I now would like to use Outlook 2002, but find when I send a message that was composed in HTML, it converts it to plain text. They are still in HTML in the 'Sent Folder' but are always received in Plain Text. I have tested this by sending to myself and to several others, who normally would receive HTML messages from me.

I have checked all the settings...Tools/Options/Mail Format Tab...'Compose in this Message Format'...HTML etc.

I have used Detect and Repair, and have Re-Installed Office. I would really appreciate any suggestions.
This has got me stumped. Does anyone have any suggestions to try?
 

Answer:Outlook 2002 Converts To Plain Text

It kinda happens to me too. Some messages I get in HTML, others i get in text - which were suposed to be in HTML.
I have a theory that it's because that HTML onces have something like this in front of them
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">

And the html onces that show up like text don't.
Perhaps it's because only programs that make HTML emails can get though as HTML.

Anyone else have any idea's on this?

The lag time can be up to several minutes, and he's found that when he does a ctrl alt delete it will prompt the printing window to come up (with the task manager), and then he can print. It's not a debilitating problem, but it's really annoying. I've already tried deleting and recreating the outlprnt file, but to no avail.

Answer:Outlook 2010 html appearing as plain text

I'm using Outlook 2010 64bit as my client to my Hotmail account. On my previous computer, I had the same setup only 32 bit Outlook 2010 and it worked fine. On my new build, some but not all, HTML emails are being rendered as plain text. It seems to be more common if the client is running as opposed to starting the client. The emails are not specific to any sender and the weird thing is that I can move those emails that aren't rendering correctly to a temp folder in Outlook, sync with Hotmail, go to the Hotmail web interface and move those emails back to the inbox from the temp folder, resync and they show up rendered as HTML in my Outlook client. That tells me that it isn't the emails themselves. I have found no other way for Outlook to recognize these emails as HTML once they have been opened in the client. Weird no?

I monitor an email group using Outlook 2000 for applcation support here at the office. Sometimes when I respond to an email that was sent by another user, and also replay to the group server, the main group server rejects it and says I am not sending plain text. I do have Outlook set to send pain text. Under "Options" "Mail Format" I have "plain text" selected. When this happens it is when I am responding to an email that someone else has sent to the group. His email was accepted by the server so it was obviously "Plain text", but something is happening when I reply to it that adds something to convert it from plain text, or at least the email server thinks it is no longer plain text. (This is a private group, and not a Yahoo group or such as that). Does anyone have a clue as to what might be happening here?

Hey All, I wondered if anyone could help me understand why we have such a massive (and increasing) problem with infected documents or, more to the point, with specially-crafted documents.
 
First of all, it's becoming a larger problem, which means it was a smaller problem previously. And I would acknowledge upfront that that's probably a factor in why it hasn't had a more serious treatment.
 
But just to put this in perspective, let's compare a TXT file, an RTF file and one of the files that runs in WORD.
 
Can a notepad file be used as a vector for running arbitrary code ?
 
Can a wordpad file be used as a vector for running arbitrary code ?
 
Can a WORD file ... Yes, I know that one
 
And let me just say, I like the application WORD. I've used it a great deal. However I only ever use a small fraction of its capabilities and I think many other users are the same. Therefore this question also occurs to me:
 
What advantage accrues to the majority of WORD users to have all that functionality available to them, if it also exposes them to attack vectors ?
 
In a lot of cases a Rich Text document is perfectly adequate. For example, let's say that you want to send someone your CV or post it online. You could use Wordpad and produce a very nice-looking CV.
 
So I wonder if we've become complacent about how we process our (essentially) plain text documents..... leaving millions of users exposed to attack vectors, uneccesarily.

Answer:Are we over-complicating plain text files, with disastrous results ?

Ease of use is the main reason to user an advanced word processor.  Sure you can create your CV in Wordpad, but it is much easier in Word.
 
From this video there is "technically" a remote code execution possible in Notepad, but the actual issue was with the Help function.  No one can say if there is a vulnerability for any specific piece of software, we can only say if there is a known vulnerability.  Look at OpenSSL, it had a vulnerability for over two years before the Heartbleed issue was found.
 
Basically complexity is the enemy of security.  The more complex something is, the more difficult it is to secure.  This is closely followed by Security is not convenient.  The more convenient something is, the more difficult, if not impossible it is to secure.

I'm a new user to Outlook 2003. My question is can I set up outlook somehow to automatically format my responses to be in HTML format, regardless of the format of the original email I received? I think this was an option in Outlook 2000, but I can't find that particular setting in 2003...

The reason I'd like to do this is because my signature is automatically placed in every reply, but in responses to plain text messages the signature looks very...plain.

A different but related subject - if I were to set up email messages to NOT automatically insert a signature, can I then insert the signature on my own? In Outlook 2000 I could go to "Insert" and select a signature, but there is not signature option in the Insert pull down menu in 2003 emails.

My office recently upgraded to Office 2007. By default, Outlook is configured to convert all incoming messages to plain text. This is a setting that we do not have the rights to change. However, when we used to have Outlook 2003 all the emails that were originally in HTML format could be converted back to HTML once we opened up the email and verified it was a trusted email. There was simply a "convert this to HTML" option that would show up somewhere in the header. This is no longer the case in Outlook 2007.

I can't for the life of me figure out how to convert the text to HTML on INCOMING emails. Outgoing isn't a problem. I've even tried editing the incoming email or forwarding it and then converting to html but it doesn't display properly. Any images that were in the email can only be viewed one at a time by clicking directly on the picture link, but not with the rest of the email.

Any ideas?

I use MS Word to save both western and cyrillic characters and I must save the text in "Plain Text" -form. When I do it the first time, everything goes fine.

Then if I re-open the file (file.txt) using "Open with" and put in any changes (making sure that I use the proper input locales to type western and cyrillic text), the second time I save the file corrupts it.

This corruption is not visible at saving time, because everything seems to go OK, but if I open the modified file, the cyrillic text has changed into something that looks like it is being interpreted to be western characters.
MS Word should ask what the encoding is, when I try to open the file.

Hello! This is a pretty specific question, but it may apply to a number of different webmail applications - I'm not sure. If I go (for example) to http://www.lawofattractionecards.com/ and send an ecard to my Hotmail account, there's an extra line break between each paragraph of the automatic e-mail, so it looks really "spaced out" - if I send an ecard to my Outlook, or Gmail, or several other e-mail clients, it looks correct. Any idea why Hotmail (and Bellsouth, plus perhaps others) adds extra line breaks between paragraphs, and if there's anything that can be done in the software that sends the message, to prevent this? Not looking for programming help, just something along the lines of "Hotmail interprets 'this tag' differently, so use 'this other tag' instead." Thanks ~ Scott

Hello.

I haven't worked with Word scripts before and don't really know if this is possible, but from what I've read it should be.

Basically, I use a plain text editor when I write on my phone on the go, where I use HTML tags to indicate formatting like this:

Normal text <i>text I want italic,</i> some more normal text

Is it possible to create a script that makes words between <i> tags italic and then remove the tags? (same for <b> for bold and <u> for underlined text) and how would I record or write one?

And also, can I use one to remove blank lines?

I use Word 2010
 

Answer:Word macro to format plain text using HTML tags

I imagine you could write a macro to that checks this and does the appropriate action.

You will however have to establich the codes you will be using.

I don't know if there will be a conflict when you open word and depending upon the layout <i> might be interpreted before the macor runs, but I think it's a aquestion of trial and error,

<i> </i>
<b> </b>
<u> </u>
<rmv> </rmv>
etc...

Sent via my personal domain:
I created a first event in my Calendar and invited myself (personal domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is a proper iCal invitation. I then created a second event in my Calendar and invited myself (GoDaddy domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is plain text.

Sent via the GoDaddy domain:
I created a first event in my Calendar and invited myself (personal domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is a proper iCal invitation. I then created a second event in my Calendar and invited myself (GoDaddy domain). The message in the Sent folder is a proper iCal invitation and the invitation that I received is a proper iCal invitation.

In summary, the only instance that failed was when I sent the invite via my personal dom... Read more

Answer:Outlook 2010 calendar invite being recieved as plain text

I left out one, potentially important bit of info: Outbound emails from my server are routed through MandraillApp. Some further testing seems to suggest that MandraillApp is the culprit. Has anyone else seen this behavior? If so, any suggestions for resolving the problem?
