What is the simplest way to view the plain text of a single message without changing outlook settings? Email messages can contain both html and plain text simultaneously but only one type can be viewed at a time and their content can contain completely different and contradictory messages according to what the sender inserted for each. I want to continue to view all messages as html by default but sometimes I'd like to see the plain text message. Ideally, I'd hope to find a button to "switch to plain text view" or "switch to html view". The shortest way I've found to accomplish something similar is to either forward or reply to the message and "Format Text > Plain Text" to show the alternate content as a workaround. Is there a more convenient way?
