Outlook 2016, Ignore Replies and Forwards not working

I had this question after viewing Outlook 2010 - Spell check - "Ignore orignial message text in reply or forward" not working.

Has anyone had issues with Outlook 2016 and this setting?  I do not want to spell check replies and forwards and I do not want to use "spell check as you type" .  So I have " Always check spelling before sending" AND "Ignore original message text in replies and forwards" both checked.  

Still when I reply or forward a message, the original text is spell checked.

We are using Windows 10 and Office 2016 Pro.  Both are 64 bit versions

You need to set the email format as plain text if you want to enable Ignore original message text in replies and forward option.

Took me a little while but I went through and checked/unchecked all of our Outlook addins and found that a home-grown version of Reply Monitor seems to be the culprit here.  Thanks to any who have spent any time on this.
