As most of you probably know, the GroupWise Windows client uses Internet Explorer to render HTML e-mail messages. Now, after installing Microsoft's Internet Explorer 7 you may wonder why your HTML e-mail messages look a bit blurry. This has to do with ClearType being enabled by default.
You can solve this problem in two different ways:
1) Tweak the ClearType settings. Have a look at
2) Turn ClearType off by doing the following:
a) Start IE 7.
b) Go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced.
c) Scroll to the Multimedia section.
d) Deselect "Always use ClearType for HTML".
e) Stop IE 7 and restart it.
Now your HTML messages look normal, like before.
