I have a user that is using the Glacier theme for Outlook 2007. His email is working fine until he try's to respond to a specific sender who is using a different stationary. The formatting is incorrect and the user can't type anything. When I turn off my users stationary the problem goes away.

Hi, ljwood.

I don't doubt what you've described, but I can't imagine how your user's stationery selection can be the problem.  Stationery is only used when creating a message.  It doesn't apply to replies.  Is it possible that your user's font color is the problem and its giving the appearance that nothing is happening when the user types?

It very well could be the font color, and yes I am aware that the theme is supposed to only apply to new messages. The problem is that the formatting is all wrong when the user replies to another specific user who is using different stationary, but when I get rid of my users theme he can respond without any problems. I personally hate stationary, but this user happens to be the owner of the business so I am stuck with this problem.I have no idea if it is the stationary or not, but when I remove my users stationary the problem is resolved. Any ideas or thoughts would be appreciated.

1.  Click Tool > Options.
2.  Select the Mail Format tab.
3.  Click the Stationery and Fonts button.
4.  What is the Font pulldown set to under Theme or stationery?

That's the theme/stationery selected.  It cannot be the font selection which must be one of the following three values

1.  Use theme's font
2.  Use my font when replying and forwarding messages
3.  Always use my fonts

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I had to change the option to use my font when replying and forwarding messages and change the font to black so that it was visible when using certain staitionary.
