Settings Configuration Kmail.

Under Message Window I unchecked show HTML status bar.
Under Appearance I did not have and still don't have Show HTML status bar.
Under Security Reading, I did not have and still don't have Prefer HTML to 
plain text checked.

Those are the only references to HTML in the configuration of kmail.  I don't 
use Thunderbird anymore.  Is there a possibility that it is in your 
configuration?  If not, where do I look for the switch for HTML-Mail?

Sorry friend.  I didn't even know that Under Message Window was checked.  I 
hope that fixed the problem.  Otherwise, I don't know what to do.


You never need appologize to me.  I am sorry for the problem.  When I changed 
the color of the font, it was to draw attention to that part of the data.  
Does that automatically change an email to HTML?
