Open Outlook, click on File, then Options

Click on "Mail" to the left and under Compose messages select "Compose messages in this format : HTML"

Is that what you're looking for?

Go to 'File' 'Options' 'Mail' Right at the top you'll see compose message format

My appologies, I said Outlook 2010 but I'm actually running Outlook 2007.

I don't find an "Options" listed under "File" but that sounds like what I'm looking for!

Under "File" I have the following options:

New
Open
Close all items
Save attachments (dimmed)
Folder
Data File Management
Imnport and Export
Archive
Page Setup
Print Preview
Print
Properties
Connect to [email account address] (dimmed)
Work Offline
Exit

I'm working with imap and pop3 accounts although I don't think that's an issue here.

thanks,
darin

in 2007 it would be under "Tools" then Mail Format, then in "Compose in this message format:HTML"

Tools/Mail Fomat is set to HTML which is good...when I create a new email it will be in HTML.

The problem is that it doesn't default to HTML when I reply to an email.

thoughts?

I see.  For replies in 2007 that can't happen.  You can read more about it here:
