Outlook 2003 in WINE

Outlook 2003 will crash under WINE / CXOFFICE when you reply to an email composed in HTML format. One way to fix this problem is to set Outllook to format all email messages as plain text, see insructions below. The best fix is not to use Outlook with Windows or Linux if possible.

Per MS KB-307594

I edited the user.reg file under the .cxoffice directroy and added:

"ReadAsPlain"=dword:00000001

to the following section

[Software\\Microsoft\\Office\\11.0\\Outlook\\Options\\Mail] 1193271793

See full example below

[Software\\Microsoft\\Office\\11.0\\Outlook\\Options\\Mail] 1193271793
"EditorPreference"=dword:00030002 
"EnableLogging"=dword:00000000 
"JunkMailImportLists"=dword:00000000 
"ReadAsPlain"=dword:00000001
