Plain text messages are not readable

Hi everyone, sure hope someone can help.

I am running Office 2003, with XP Pro.

Apparently I have inadvertently changed a setting, because all emails 
received in Plain Text are not readable. I can open them OK, but there is 
nothing in the body of the message.

Additionally, if I create a new contact or calendar item, any info I enter 
in the fields for "subject", "location", "name", "job title", etc. appears 
OK. But any info I enter in the body of the appointment, or the contact, does 
not appear. However, once I save the new item, then the data appears on the 
screen. If I open the item back up, the info in the body disappears.

Does anyone know what's going on??

Thanks you guys for any help.

HTML messages received as plain text
Whenever I send a message in HTML format and receive a copy of it at my own inbox, it gets converted to plain text.

Disappearing text
When I paste some text from a web page into Word 2007, I can edit the text but it does not print. It does not appear in print preview either. However I can read it in Word. I notice the text has underlining. What gives? Sounds as if the text is formatted as hidden. Select it and clear the "Hidden" option in the Font dialog box (Ctrl+D). If you see a filled box (instead of a check mark), just click the option twice to turn it off. (The filled box indicates different settings in the selection; for example, some text may be hidden while other text is not.) -- Stefan B...

PLAIN plain text
I'm an unhappy user of Outlook 2003 (no choice...). One of the reasons for my unhappiness concerns sending text to people who aren't using Outlook. I initially went into the Outlook dlg box "Tools | Options", the "Mail Format" tab, and set the "Compose in this message format" drop-down to "Plain Text." But that wasn't good enough: two recipients (one a majordomo, the other running an unidentified email client on a *nix machine) got gibberish. The gibberish turned out to be uuencoded with the 64 bit format. While this is a standard format...

font changing on forwarded messages.
Occasionally when I send an email, the recipients copy of the email has font irregularities. For example, one sentence will be typed in Arial 10, then next few sentences are in Arial 12, and then abruptly its changed back to Arial 10. Oddly, it doesn't display like this on my computer before I send the email. Also, it doesn't look like this in my sent items. However it does look odd on the recipient's side. It happens when I send it to different people. If they forward the email back to me, then I can see the font irregularities. I have tried format/reload of my Windows ...

merge unformatted date with text
My original date column was formatted 02/01/71. I created a new column and created a custom date format; 020171. I would like to take this column and merge it together with the last 3 digits of a column where a ss# resides. This column is a text column. For example, the new column should look like 020171008.
