Without a style sheet such as CSS, a site would display differently in your browser. Which do you prefer?

While I would agree that the snip is not malicious there is the distinct possibility since the OP mentioned this is an email and only is a snip of it and the same email opens fine on their own email server but not on Win10 mail client that it may be a security setting or possibly a recent security update to their Win10 PC which may have blocked or remove portions of the email..

They mentioned something about views fine on their own email server, but it doesn't view fine on their Win10 mail client (separate PC?) so I am guessing that they have their own email server serving up the emails to a Win10 mail client..

Depending on their configuration their own email server, firewall configuration and so on could even be playing a part in what they are seeing. It is possible they can open the email on their own email server and it show correctly, but not on the remote email client. They may need to check their own email server for needed security updates and correct configuration.

Some emails to reduce the file size sent will use a remote website to host repetitive pictures like backgrounds, signatures, logos.. Blocking (not trusting, blacklisting, firewalling those websites can break what you see in your emails..

No it's on the same PC. I use Rogers.com, it provides Yahoo mail which shows the email properly. When I open the email with W10 mail, then it has the gibberish.

Depending on their configuration their own email server, firewall configuration and so on could even be playing a part in what they are seeing. It is possible they can open the email on their own email server and it show correctly, but not on the remote email client.

I will go and check if there's any updates to W10, usually it does them at night, and if required notifies me to do a restart if required.
