Re: HTML encoded spreadsheets?

From your description of what you're receiving, it sounds like they are going (in Excel) 'File' menu -> 'Send to...' -> 'Mail recipient'. This starts a new message in Outlook, converting the current spreadsheet to HTML and bunging it in the message body. The resulting message is useless even if you have Excel.

[Note, I don't have Excel here so can't check this, but it sounds like the type of format you get from this]

The simplest way to fix this is by taking your clue stick and gently persuading them to use 'File' menu -> 'Send to...' -> Mail recipient (as attachment)' instead.
