If someone tries to send anything other than a text message...in text format...it probably looks like junk. It is a very limited format, with little formatting and other options available. Pure and simple.
The text format is not like the .doc format...pictures, etc. cannot be included as part of the message. This format is only for word messages, no frills.
Rich text (.rtf) is entirely different and more flexible, allowing use of graphics, text, and formatting options not found in the .txt format.
Soooo...if it were me, I'd go back to the sender and see what the garble might be.
