I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.


How are you doing?

If you do a lot of forwarding that has to be answered back to the person, check out this utility:

If you go to Tools > Options > Mail format (tab) > under Message Format, do you have HTML selected and Word 2003 to edit messages? If so, try using the Rich Text (in the drop down above, that has the HTML selected). Otherwise, try the reverse and select HTML if Rich Text is selected.
