I need to determine what message format (Plain-text, RTF, HTML, etc) an email message is in. I have the
.MSG file from the sender's sent items folder. Is there a way I can check this in Outlook 2010?
You need to look at the email messages header. Depending on your email client this can be achieved a number of ways.
Steps in outlook to see the message header:
- Open the message in a new window in Outlook.
- Select View | Options... from the message's menu
- All header lines appear under Internet Headers at the bottom of the dialog that comes up.
At the end of the header you'll see a line like this:
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8
text/plain it's text only and if it's
text/html then it's HTML.
