Operating System Version: Windows Me
Problem Application Name & Version: MS Outlook v9.0.0.6627 thru SP-3
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Compaq Armada M700
Error Messages: None

I setup a website to send me regular Emails in HTML format which I save to an Outlook folder.  I recently needed to "find" something in one of the Emails in the folder and discovered that Outlook's "find" option doesn't seem to work on html-formatted email.... I can see the letters display on the screen when I read the message but I can't "Find" anything in these html messages (obviously, I've switched the format of future Emails to text now and "find" works for those but I'm stuck on the ones I've already received and filed).  

Anyone have any ideas if there is a way to do this?  I know source html is a jumble with codes and all but the text that displays DOES exist in the jumble and I don't understand why "Find" doesn't work.

I feel like I've probably got some setup option in Outlook set wrong or there's just a trick I'm missing.

Thanks if anyone has an answer!
