Outlook 2010 reply all font from calendar appointment

Hello. I am posting responses to everyone in a specific meeting within an appointment in Outlook.  I open the meeting. I click on respond and select reply all.

When I do this the text looks normal but when I send it out it is the wrong font.  While in my messages I have to click on the format tab and select Aa HTML in order for my message to look correct.


Where can I set the defaults for this?

Hi tucktech,

That is both by default and design, Outlook will send Meeting replies in plain text format and has no inbuilt setting to change this behaviour. It's a similar issue to when you receive a Plain Text email, by default, Outlook will send the reply in the same format unless you manually change the format before clicking the send button.

There are add-ins such as "KuTools" and "Bells & Whistles for Outlook" which could achieve what you need, but I've only ever used KuTools and never used it to try and address the problem you're trying to overcome. I no longer have it installed so am unable to test, but it should be able to achieve what you want. I used KuTools for a time to address a different issue but ended up uninstalling it once Microsoft addressed my problem in a future update.

The only other way I can think of is to use a macro which needs to be run each time. I'm not a coder but the following links give a couple of examples of how this can be achieved. You'll note the first link discusses the use of KuTools before going into the macro side of things.



I hope that's helpful.

Regards, Andrew
