I receive messages in Rich text format and Outlook defaults the
formatl to plain text on replies. This renders my sig's and everything else
in them useless. If it replied to HTML as HTML or Rich Text as Rich Text, I
would not have a problem. Taking that into consideration, your answer makes
no sense.

When I want to save an incoming message in OE I go to File, then Save
As. I get a diaog box with a "Save in:" bar which lists a default
folder, but it's one that I don't want to use. So I have to use the
pull-down menu to change this folder each time from the default to the
desktop folder, which I prefer. How can I change the default folder to
the desktop folder?

I am using win xp home with outlook express 6. How can I change the default
font from Arial to Verdana. I can change it using tool but each time I start
a new message it will start with Arial.
Thanks, Jerry

Hoping the rage babies have gone to bed now.

Is there any way I can set ALL my messages, regardless of their status as
reply, forward or new message, to be formatted in RichTextFormatting?

It's becoming annoying to see all my mails get reverted back to plaintext.
It's so bloody ugly :(

I came here trying to get Outlook to default to Plain Text for replies.

I will not participate in the mud throwing about who choose which format and
why - rest assured that I have good reasons why I would prefer my replies to
HTML emails to default to plain text.

If anyone has something useful to add to the thread it would be most welcome.
I use Outlook 2007 - maybe I can get plain text by rolling back to 2003? :)

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?

We have a server using SBS2003 with 3 workstations on XPpro. We are using
Outlook2003. We have access to the internet from the workstations and when
we send an email it is always outside our own LAN. We never send email to
ourselves, therefore we want our internet service provider email account to
be the default email account for sending email, not the Microsoft Exchange
Server. How can I change the default account to be used, please ? Thanks ...

I designed a new mail form and would like to begin to use it in place of the
standard form/template. How can I change the default?

I'm using Outlook 2003.

Thanks!

We use Outlook 2003 sp2 and have a small LAN with 3 workstations using a
Server SBS 2003. We are set up to send emails via Microsoft Exchange Server
and never send email to ourselves, only to "external" addresses in the
outside world ! When we send emails to outside the LAN they always show the
local email address, ie roger@ournetwork.local so anyone replying to our
emails will get an "address unknown" message. How can I change the return
address on our emails so that it shows our external address and not the
internal local address. I have been told it can be done, but I can't figure
it out ... Roger

How do you change the default insert file path in outlook 2007?
Instead of going to "My Documents" all the time, I want to go to my
"Desktop" when I need to attach a file to an email. How can this be changed?

I believe by default your line spacing when composing e-mail messages is 12
point; If I want to change the default, and not have to each time right
click, go in to Paragraph, etc., how do I do it?

A helpful response even if about a very unhelpful programme! Surely outlook
should be customisable to do things "my way" - I would prefer to get rid of
the standard inbox altogether and use just the imap one. How many years of
evolution and Micrososoft still think THEY know best how WE want to work.

This should be a very simple cofiguration job in well written programme

My Office outlook template automaticly goes from right to left how can I set
it up to go from left to right by default

How can I change where Outlook saves document files to permanently? Is there
an option both in 2003 and 2007 to change what folder my documents default
for saving is to?

Thanks in advance.

Hal.

I CANNOT seem to get Office 2007 to save new formatting defaults. Every time
I open a new message, I am again stuck with the same crappy default. How can
I force the new Office suite to take my formatting preferences?

A follow up question... Is anyone else sick and tired of the extra spaces
Microsoft has introduced into every e-mail?
