Hi GTG Techs,

I use Mozilla's mail server 'Thunderbird' with my safe-mail.net account. Been using it for years. Now a quirky problem has arisen which is baffling me.

Opening any e-mail that is already in the inbox displays it as an HTML source code usually displays, when you click that menu option in any browser. My Thunderbird settings are View > Character Encoding > Auto-detect OFF; radio button on Western (ISO-8859-1). I'm pretty sure this is how it always was.

Going to Tools > Options > Display tab shows nothing irregular....nor do any of the settings in 'Options', or account settings.

All I know is that it worked fine until I downloaded a batch of new mail and maybe clicked open a junk or spam item, now long deleted. It started after that. I ran my updated AVG virus scanner specifically on C:\Program Files\Thunderbird and came up with nothing. I can run more scans, which I'll do, but I wonder if there is a quick fix or any useful advice I might garnish from a GTG Posting. Any advice would be nice.

Thanks, U R the best -

This matter has been traced to malware damage, so it is no longer an e-mail/browser issue.

Hence, this topic will close here in this forum.

As an XP OS issue, the topic can be found at this link:

Thank you one and all,
