    I'm using Outlook 2003. Sometimes, when I reply to or forward a message, the format changes from "HTML" or "rich text" to "plain text", thus losing all colour and font information.

    Does Outlook have an option to prevent this?

    The format is based on the senders options in the received email.

    Remember that if the sender has chosen plain text, even if you respond in HTML it will probably be stripped out at their end.

    A good artlicle here:
