Signature problem

Dear Experts
I know that when i create a signature, three files are created, rtf, txt, html, and the relevant signature is used when replying and fowarding e-mail depending on the mail editing option of the sender mail.  have created a signature that uses multiple fonts, like my name in bold and size 20, while my address lne has size 15 and font normal and italic. My problem is when i am replying to mails, the signature fonts changes, How to overcome this. I think this happen because when i am replying or fowarding e-mails, it takes the editing option of the sender mail. If the mail that came is in txt editing mode, it takes the txt signature, and txt signature is created in only one font, I tried editing it, but txt file does not allow multiple fonts in one document. So is there a way to come around this, i.e when i am replying to mail, it should take my signature in the same format as i created it i.e with multiple fonts, when I am replying a mail, that has come in txt editing mode

Short answer is no.  Outlook will reply to plain text messages in plain text, and there is no option allowing you to change that behavior.  Plain text, as you mentioned, doesn't allow you to specifiy font, font size, and font color.

You can change the format of the message once you have hit the reply button and change the format manually, but then you would need to manually insert the signature, as it won't be automatically formatted the way you want it to be.

However, if someone is sending to you in plain text it's quite possible that what you send to them will be plain text when they get it, regardless of the format you send in.
