Hello,




I saw this posted about a year ago, but there was no solution for it, so I'm reposting.




In my signature, I have two hyperlinks, but when I try to forward a message,


it changes to plain text and it does not include the hyperlinks. I have tried


changing options/settings but I can't seem to figure it out. Can someone tell


me how to fix this problem. I think that maybe changing a setting to always


let fwd messages be HTML or Rich text may fix this, but I have had no luck...


Thanks in advance!!!




I have this same problem, the links only show in new messages and not in replies or forwards. I'm using 2003 on an exchange. Any help is appreciated!

When you reply or forward plain text messages, Outlook uses the plain text signature. You can't change the behavior, short of changing the message format before hitting Reply or Forward.

How are the hyperlinks formed in your signature? Like This or this http://www.slipstick.com ?

If like This do you see the display phrase in the signature? You can go to %appdata%\microsoft\signatures and edit the text file to include the url.

ETA: you'll need to use http://www.whatever.com/ format in the plain text sig.

Since this original question was posted has their been any updates to a solution?

I to would like to have my reply/forward messages use the hypelinks and not the URL's.

Is the message plain text or HTML?

Are you using the same signature for replies as for new messages?
