  • I have an android phone. Out of the blue, email on my MSN account just started arriving in a text format, not readable, no pictures, etc. In some of the email messages, when I click on the links, I get sent to a webpage (page not found error). What happened? I didn't change anything and this just started happening. Please advise. Thank you.
