How can I force Outlook to send Rich Text .. Even on Replies?

How cn I force Outlook to use Rich Text Format even on Replies?  
Ideally I would like this to be for ALL messages sent .. no matyter who or how.   But minimally I need to send Rich Text (or minimally Plain Text)  even when replying to a person who sent a message in HTML format.

Amyway to override this?   I modified my contact info for an individual but it still sent it out in HTML on the reply.

Any thoughts.

Greetings DanRaposo !

I suggest to sent emails in Plain Text format, as Rich Text can be a problem for recipient reading that format.

Here is a way to set Outlook to reply in Plain Text

Outlook replies in the format in which it is sent, and you cannot change that.  But on a per reply basis, you can change the format. With the message open, on the Message Options tab, in the Format group, click the format that you want to use (Plain Text, HTML, or Rich Text).

Hope this helps, war1

Yeah .. I know how to do that.  I was hoping to make it global.

There is nothing native to Outlook that will make reply always in Rich Text. You can use a third party program like Bells and Whistles to that
