When I send an email I always want to have replies sent to my private email address outside of my work.  I would like to set a Message Options default and set Delivery Options to always Have replies sent to:me@myway.com.  Is there a way to set a default for Message Options?  We use Exchange 2003 at work.

Greetings, cnalley.

There are a couple of possibilities.  One, create a message template, set the options you want, save it, and then use it is the basis for all of your new messages.  Two, I can provide a small script (Outlook macro) that will set this automatically on every message you send.

Cheers!

Thank you BlueDevilFan!  I've set up a template but I can't figure out a way to always have messages use this template automatically as the default instead of having to pick the template each time.  I don't want to create an icon or anything, I just want Outlook to use that template as the default.

I understand.  Have a look at this: http://www.outlookcode.com/d/newdefaultform.htm
You'll need to edit the default message form and save it as a custom form.  You can then use these instructions to set it as the default.
