For some strange reason lately, some emails open in HTML OK, others in text only with links, etc. Why this inconsistency? I use Apple Mail via AO. This is a new circumstance.

El Capitan Mac OS 10.11.6 on my desktop Mac Mini.

FWIW, Apple Mail has been acting up for me lately, too. I've had messages come in showing no attachments, but open the same message in Mail on my iPad or iPhone and the attachments are there. Some come in with broken links. It will eventually straighten itself out, but it's annoying.

Phyl, This article discusses attachment issues, though I haven't experienced that issue.

The article is rather complex for me, but not relevent in my case.

I may investigate prefs, but the inconsistency doesn't make sense.
