Outlook 2013 signature line links not working

In Outlook 2013 when I reply to an email that has come in as text only my signature line shows up as text only on my reply. It basically disables the links for email address and website address on my signature . How can i make it so no matter what the source email is formatted as that my signature line links will always be active?

Outlook Will always reply in the format the original mail is composed.
Outlook has no build in tweaks to alter this.

Hi mspencer100,

The macro linked by Patricksr1972 is the only to achieve this on your side. But keep in mind that on the recipient's side most email clients (Outlook, Gmail, etc.) will convert the URLs into clickable hyperlinks regardless of the format of the message.
