    Every message that arrives in my inbox displays jumbled when viewed in Windows Mail. But the same message viewed in Thunderbird looks fine. This is an IMAP server and as such the message is staying on the server.



    It doesn't seem to matter whether I view the message in TBird or WinMail first.

    Screen shots from TBird and WinMail along with the full text (saved as a txt file and modified to hide my personal info).

    What you are seeing are the message's "headers".

    I see nothing "jumbled" in the screenshot you provided -- just lots of details on the email headers from the IMAP server. The difference in what you see is based on the settings in the email programs. Looks like Windows Mail is displaying all the header info and the message body, while Tbird is displaying minimal header info, plus the body.
