Outlook2003 Signature Issue

Im using Outlook 2003 and am having a problem with my signature file
switching to Times Roman when I create a new message although I specified the
signature font to be Arial.

How can I get the signature to keep the Arial font and not revert to Times
Roman? Could there be some sort of overriding Microsoft setting that takes
precedence over the signature settings?

Your best bet (in my opinion) is to modify the signature in something like MS Frontpage or a similar HTML editor.
The location of the signature files is c:\documents and settings\(profile)\application data\microsoft\signatures.
Look for the html file bearing your signature name and modify it, make all your changes, so that it looks how you want it to, then save it and test in Outlook.

Also check from within Outlook your fonts.
Click on Tools, Options, Mail format tab, Fonts.  Change anything here and that should change the defaults for you.

This is because the emails that you are replying is in plain text. Outlook reply in the format the email was sent. You cannot change that through any outlook settings. In the reply mail, you can change it to HTML manually. Otherwise you need to use some add-ins or scripts.
