Turn on HTML--Tiger Direct ads do not work when reading mail in plain text
mode.

That's just it - I am using Eudora and do not see where to 'set' that
option. Do you know?

Thanks

Sorry--I don't use Eudora and don't know where the option is located.
Hopefully a Eudora user will respond.

A Google search places the option here:

Special --> Settings --> Fonts & Display

I sure do not see anything there to apply to my problem - namely
reading html in Eudora.

Thanks anyway

What version of Eudora?

Any help from the actual Eudora Web site/FAQs/Manual?
http://www.eudora.com/techsupport/

Interesting Article about HTML email..
http://www.clickz.com/experts/em_mkt/case_studies/article.php/839541

Where it states:
' Eudora was somewhat disappointing. The survey found that even those using
Eudora 5.0 did not necessarily have full HTML support. The main factor was
whether the user had MS Internet Explorer configured. If so, support was
there. If not, the program did not control font size well or allow for form
submission.'

Anyway.. Try

Tools -> Options -> Viewing Mail

Anything there?

Viewing Mail shows nothing relevant.

Hmmm

I brought up Internet Explorer and went to Tools>Internet
Options>Programs and clicked on 'Reset Web Settings' and okay'ed out.
After that my Eudora displayed Tiger HTML just fine.

Hope it stays that way

Thanks
