    Text Wrap In Email (2003)

    Anyone know of any way to force the text within an email to wrap so that you do not need to scroll left and right to read it?

    If you're talking about Plain Text messages, there's a configurable option under Tools|Options|Mail Format|Internet Format. HTH

    Are you using Word are your email editor within Outlook?

    The only ones that I have this problem with are emails that use frames or tables whick are set by the sender.

    If the above doesn't resolve, please indicate:

    (1) Are you viewing in an Outlook window or in Microsoft Word?

    (2) Is the message in plain text or rich text or HTML format? (Usually indicated on the title bar)

    It looks like changing the number of characters to wrap has resolved this problem but I will have to wait a few days so that I have had a chance to check it against numerous emails. Thanks!

    Odd, I always thought that setting only affected outbound messages. Hmmm...

    UPDATE!!!!!

    Additional use of Outlook over the past week has revealed more about this problem. It is only with emails that are in HTML format. When I get these emails no pictures are included should the email contain links to images. There is a note in the field where the image would appear that says to right-click if I want to download the images. When I do that the text wrap changes and I no longer need to scroll the page.

    Has anyone seen anything like this and would this be considered a bug that should be reported?

    I get it when I paste HTML content from another source (our on-line prospect tracking site) into e-mails as HTML (because changing the format to RTF or plaintext -really- munges the tabular layout). I don't think it's a bug, it's a matter of the HTML retaining all of it's layout and formatting, including font size and line length.

    The downloading of the images is part of the new security settings, and you NEED to read up on this and use it to you advantage.

    If you were to "Right Click" the message about downloading the images you will find more options.

    This is NOT a bug but as designed. Check out Ed's and Woody's new book for the COMPLETE story about Office 2003.
