    Replying to an HTML msg in text format

    When I receive an HTML message, how can I hit the reply button and have the text or rtf editor open, instead of the html editor? More and more messages seem tto be in html nowadays, and while it's nice to read them thus, I'd rather have Wordmail and the standard rtf/text editor. I've tried things like pressing Ctrl/Shift while clicking the reply button. Seems like the only way I can do it is by copying the text and pasting into a new message. Am I right?

    If you use the Format menu to change the format of your reply to plain text, save a draft, and then re-open it, does it open in the correct editor? Not that you would want to do this manually very often, but conceivably you could create a VBA procedure to automate it.

    Re: Replying to an HTML msg in text format

    Hmm, strange -- I don't get a choice in the Format menu off the html editor to change the format to 'plain text'. The menu options include Theme, Autoformat, Style and Frames, but not 'Format'. Hold on, I just realised: I'm using Wordmail! I tried removing that in Options/MailFormat, and sure enough it gives me the choice to reply in text. But I'd still rather use Wordmail (same interface and tools as Word). I guess I've got no choice. Oh well, Wordmail always was a kludge, eh?
