In Outlook98, the option is under Tools: Options: Mail Format. There is a
drop down list of 'Send in this message format:' which you can set to Plain

I can't say I'm surprised that you've had problems with it though. It's the
good old 'Microsoft knows best' approach isn't it. The 'I know you've chosen
that option but I know what you REALLY mean to do is ...'

Oh well.

<I just tried to send this using Outlook98 and I couldn't as it said I was
out of memory or system resources! This is on a machine with 132MB of RAM
and 3GB free HD space and just after a reboot! Don't you just love how
compatible Microsoft's applications are with their own OS?>
