Long time ago in the FIDO Win95 echo I learned how to use OE on this XP
box to connect to HUB2000 to see if I liked doing echo mail that way.

Your message to Mark had me take a look at the OE - Options - Send Tab

Mail Sending Format - HTML
News Sending Format - Plain Text

I use TB instead of OE for POP email, but I changed the Mail Sending

But if I Forward a HTML message I will switch over to HTML and then
switch back to Text when I'm finished Forwarding stuff.

I only tried NNTP FIDO mail for a couple of times and went back to .QWK.
