    Outlook 2010 signature

    I use the Script MT Bold font for my signature. It works fine on new emails and some replies. However, when I reply to certain emails the signature ends up in plain text. In the E-mail Signature tab I have selected my signature for both New Messages and Replies/forwards. How come I get plain text?

    The first question is whether the rest of the message is in Plain Text format. Generally speaking, Outlook will reply in the same format as the message to which you are replying.

    OK. How do I force my reply to HTML?

    Once you click "Reply", click on the "Format Text" tab then click "HTML" in the Format section.

    I don't know how to do the conversion before your signature is inserted automatically. Perhaps if you find the option to always use your stationery even for a reply. I've never tested that.

    Thanks, Joe. One more step is required. Click Insert Signature, select Howard. A script Howard then replaces the plain text Howard.
