Default My BB sends HTML messages through BES

Please Login to Remove!


I use a 7250 on a hosted BES/Exchange Server through Link2Exchange. When newly activated my BB used to send all new e-mails and replies in plain text. Now it sends it in HTML (Times New Roman size 10) and when I look at the source of my messages, here's what I get:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=utf-8">
<META NAME="Generator" CONTENT="MS Exchange Server version 6.5.7226.0">
<TITLE>Test format</TITLE>
<!-- Converted from text/plain format -->

<P><FONT SIZE=2>...e-mai body text...</FONT>


So it looks as if the Exchange Server converts my plain text messages to HTML but I don't know how I can control that... I don't even know what I did to initiate the change! The only thing that I can think of is that it started to do that after I plugged it in to my computer and used the Blackberry Desktop Manager... But I haven't seen any settings about the mail format in it...

I would prefer to keep it "plain text only" but maybe some of you would prefer using HTML but actually personalize fonts and size.

Any idea?
