Reading emails in plain text format can be a blessed relief from complicated formatting, not to mention that they are open faster and safer than HTML-strong emails. To use plain text in Outlook as the default.
Before we go into it, it should be noted that plaintext has pros and cons for both the sender and the receiver. The main disadvantage of plain text is that it has no formatting and no inline functions like images or links. Practically all read emails look a bit different if you read them in plain language, and some emails are barely legible if they are formatted heavily.
However, there are also advantages. Only text is safer because nothing is hidden. There can be no embedded tracking images or hidden phishing URLs (since the URL is visible in plain text, you can see the entire URL and not all the text the sender wanted to show you). Because of this, emails that you send as plain text are considered less dangerous or malicious by automated scanners, because simple text just can not be as dangerous as HTML. (This does not mean that someone can not send you a malicious link in plain text, but it's much harder to get you to click on it.)
In this sense, read all the news in plain text format, all plain text messages and only a single plain text message.
