Outlook 2000 Paste Special text

Specs: Windows XP
My setup XP Outlook 2000 (

Had used Paste Special for many years in appointments and contacts then suddenly stopped working this month. Only available Edit->Paste Special was HTML when I wanted to past text to avoid having to reformat fonts. Futile search until today's solution below.

From main Outlook command menu:
Tools->Options->Mail Format

In section Message Format click check box:
Use Microsoft Word to edit e-mail messages

Well now that works partly but not for HTML which used to work fine. Any suggestions. (It is not the Skype problem, since not instatlled.)

Re-install Outlook but as a safeguard back up your PST file first in case you need to restore it after the re-install it (shouldn't be necessary since the PST file is stored in a separate location, but best to play it safe just in case it gets zapped).
