I don't consider it necessarily "rude" to change the format. Sometimes it's
needed. My issue is that sometimes I have a text email with active
hyperlinks that I need to forward. When I try to forward it, the links
become inactive. If I could set all my forwards to be HTML or Rich Text,
those links would remain active. Which is what I need. This is also the
case in some replies, where a previous link needs to be active.
Is there a way to set up that all
replies/forwards are a specific format?
