'Mark comments with my name' in Outlook after changing message format from plain text to HTML/Rich Text

I am using Outlook 2000 and have a problem regarding email formats and the Outlook feature that enables marking comments made in the body of the orginal email with your name.

Please could anyone tell me if there is a way of enabling comments to be marked with my name when replying to an email that has been sent to me in plain text. This feature of Outlook only seems to work when replying to an email that was originally sent in Rich Text or HTML format.

I understand plain text format messages do not support formatting, but as it's possible to change the message format from plain text to HTML/Rich Text when replying/forwarding an email, why is it not possible to add comments in the original email text which are marked with your name? or is it possible somehow??

When you reply to an email that is plain text, you should be able to change the format of it from it's toolbar, or you should be able to go into format menu and change the formatting there.

I find that the above option only works for me when I am using word as my email editor.  Then it doesn't seem to matter what format the email is in.

HTH,
Scott

Thanks for your reply Scott.

I appreciate that you can convert the message format  of an email from plain text to HTML/RTF and then change the formatting of text. But I would really like to know if you are able to use the 'mark comments with my name' feature when replying to emails that were sent to you originally in plain text format. I'm pretty sure you can do this in Outlook 2002, but would like to know if its possible in Outlook 2000.

thanks in advance,

Tim

Tim,

Unfortunately I'm not using outlook 2000...  However, if you try using word as your email editor for outlook, you could test and see if it works for plain text emails.

yours,
Scott
