Hello Experts,

I have a user who is using Quickparts in Outlook for personal greetings.
I.E. "Trust you doing well", "Yours sincerly" etc.
The Problem is that the Font isn't adapting to the E-mail Font.
The Quick Parts is set to Times new Roman. But the mail can be a lot
of different fonts when replying, as you can imagine.
Is there a way to set Quick Parts text to change the font to the one which is used in the E-mail?

I have tried to set the paste options in outlook with no luck.

We are using:
Win7 32Bit Office 2010 SP2

In Case you need any other info I'm happy to add it.

Many thanks for the Help in advance,

Dennis

Create the quick parts in a plain-text message.  They won't have any font information associated with them and will therefore pick up the font information from the message they're inserted into.

Hi BlueDevilFan,

Thank you very much for the Tip.
I was able to recreate this on my outlook and it has perfectly worked.
The Laptop from the user is not available today, I will verify, this is also working for him and mark it as solved
as soon as this is done.  

Many thanks for this and have a great day ahead,

Dennis
