I have my email options set to HTML, yet i still receive email's in Plain Text. I don't want this because when I reply my signature is automatically inserted at the bottom (yes, that is what i want) but is then converted to plain text (no i dont want this).After I hit reply and switch the format from plain text to HTML my signature is not converted to the new format.

Any help of information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Hi Stoychastic, and welcome to TSG.

I have my email options set to HTML, yet i still receive email's in Plain Text.
That may be because some people are sending their messages as plain text only. They may be doing that because whatever device they are using to compose, send and receive e-mails may only support plain text. Forcing your reply to use HTML will get it converted to plain text with possibly an attachment on their end.

I don't believe that Outlook 2003 has a built-in way to always use HTML for replies but you may be able to do it with a VBA macro. Here is a link to a page with the macro and also reasons why you should not send HTML replies to plain text messages.
