    format of reply to email (Outlook 2000 )

    I have my format for emails set to rich text. Sometimes when responding to an email the format switches to something else. Does my reply automatically pick up the formatting of the email to which I am responding? If so, what is the easiest way to have my response be in my preferred format? Thanks

    1. Yes.

    2. While Editing, click on the menu Format drop down and select your preferred message Format. There are circumstances, such as an HTML formatted table, when changing to plain text will really scramble the layout of the original message, so I'm judicious about when I change a mail format.

    However, you could automate the process with code this if you want, using the Item_Send Event, something like this, untested:

    Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    With Item
    .Body = .Body ' set the body to the default Outlook setting
    .Save
    End With
    End Sub
