Force Windows Mail to display all email messages in plain text

By default, Windows Mail will display the email messages you receive in whatever format were sent in: this could be plain text (no images and no formatting whatsoever), or in "rich text" (emails like official newsletters that contain colors, formatting, embedded pictures, etc.) Although Windows Mail will protect you from spam by hiding images from senders you don't know (pictures can be used to track whether an email was read or not), you can go one step further in email security by forcing Windows Mail to display all the emails you receive as plain text. We'll show you how to do just that in this tutorial.

Display all emails as plain text in Windows Mail

Follow these steps to configure how your emails are displayed:

If you ever get tired of seeing all your email messages in plain text, using the same font (which is configurable, as we'll see in a later tutorial), you can always go back to the Windows Mail options and restore the original behavior, and revert to displaying pictures and formatting information especially from people you already know (known senders).
