plain text formatting



sOutlook 2007:
For years i have sent emails in HTML but, increasingly, come recipients are
complaining about not being able to open them, especially with attachments.
As a result I have converted to sending in plain text. The problem is that
paragraph formatting is not retained, for example in a numbered list. How
does one lock in the formatting?




numbered list is kind of like color and font size, it does not translate to
plain text

In addition to dlw's remark; wouldn't you rather solve the HTML issue?

Do you have a virus scanner installed which integrates itself with Outlook?
Uninstall this integration part of your virus scanner and try again; you'd
still be sufficiently protected by your on-access scanner part of the virus
scanner. For more details see;

If your computer got infected by a virus attached to an email, you complain
first by yourself for opening it and then perhaps to the vendor of the virus
scanner for not having an effective on-access scanner. You can use the phone
as well to complain to them ;-)

As said; the integration feature of their scanner doesn't add an extra level
of security as it is using the same definitions as the on-access scanner.
