Really turning HOTMAIL RTF OFF OFF OFF

Really turning HOTMAIL RTF OFF OFF OFF

Post by bearbras » Thu, 06 Apr 2006 21:12:52


A mailing list I am trying to post too will not accept HTML, all
messages from hotmail account are bounced because RTF is ON.

Instructions say to get into the HOTMAIL compose part and click on
tools and if RTF is shown as OFF click on it to make it read ON,
because then it will be OFF.

OK, but when I do that it reports an error, and in a window above the
compose window it says click here to fix, well round and round we go,
it will not turn OFF RTF - grrrr.

I suggest you speak to the mailing list's admin, as it seems to be an issue
on their end.

Yes that is a consideration, but the list
in their wisdom does not want HTML
or any sort of graphical post, so one
needs to be able to turn OFF the RTF
option, a friend of mine is now stuck
too as trying to help me she turned it
ON and now can't get the thing
to turn OFF.

So back to the start please, how do
we get it OFF OFF OFF.

If available would a solution depend on the importance of the situation and
how much the pocketbook can tolerate.
Realizing its not the most cost effective solution(free ones always win for
most) but signing up for a Hotmail Premium subscription and use of OE or OL
may offer plain text mail to the mailing list. I've no experience with
sending to your or any mailing list, thus if you know someone with a Hotmail
or Msn http premium subscription and uses OE or OL, ask them to test it..if
it works at least you'll have a $20 solution, and by the time the
subscription renewal arrives 12 months later maybe the Hotmail rtf issue
toggle will be fixed.

I doubt that it is an issue for them. They just don't want to receive posts
with RTF, HTML, or any other kind of formatted content; just plain text.
The issue would be with MSN Hotmail, which doesn't seem to offer the option
to send "just plain text". Not that I can find.

Just because MSFT does it a certain way, doesn't mean everybody else has to
go along.

Using FIREFOX with hotmail fixes it up
