Outlook 2003 reply/forward defaults Times New Roman 12 Font

On one of our workstations with a fresh install of office 2003 and service pack 2, the defaulted font when replying and forwarding emails will change from the preset Veranda 12 to Times New Roman 12. We have tried setting under tools -> options -> format -> fonts-> changing all to Veranda 12 and choosing always use my fonts for stationary settings. The wierd part is it will work only when word 2003 is not set to be the default editor. Any thoughts as to why this happens would be greatly appriciated!

Thanks,
Murphyins

What is your Plain Text font set to?  In that Font dialog box, there is an International Font's button.  Is this set to convert Verdanan to Times New Roman?
