    Signatures (2003 SR2)

    I have a signature with a script "Howard" in it. When I create a new document it is always correct. However, when I reply or forward some mail, Howard appears in Times New Roman, like the rest of the text. But not always! When I reply to some senders, the script font is correct. Does it depend on what program the sender is using? I am not using Word as my email editor.

    The rely may be done in a different font, since the sender used the different font. And if the sender sent you one using "Plain Text" then it would have the default Plain text font. There are so many variables here one needs to look at each message to see if it is plain text, HTML, or even RTF.

    That's what I thought. I just played around with a reply to a msg in plain text. I changed the format to HTML, inserted a new signature, and voila!, it appeared in script. I find it interesting that the sender controls the format of a reply.
    Thanks for the insight.

    The settings for this are located in the Outlook Options, Mail Format tab and then the "Fonts" button.

    Thanks for the pointer. I'm not sure what to do here. My signature has several lines, with two different fonts. My name is in script (don't remember the font I used) while the rest is 10 pt Courier New. The three fonts specified in Message Fonts are 10 pt Arial, 10 pt Arial and 10 pt Courier New. I am not using any stationery.
