What I need to do is probably pretty simple, I just don't know how to do it. I have created a template that I would like to use basdically all the time. It is associated with a department wide account and has graphics that we would like to use. These include header and footer graphics as well as a standard message. What I would like to be able to do is have the form load automatically or be a default template for replies and new outgoing messages. New outgoing messages is no problem, but having it load for replies is where I am running into problems. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Outlook replies using the format of the original and you would need to use VBA to copy the message and make a new message. This screws up threading and may mess up the formatting. A thread with several replies back and forth would look awful. We don't recommend it and don't have code samples that can do it.

if you choose the option to either not include the reply or to attach it (Tools, options, email options), then you can use default stationery for replies. However, many people find message attachments annoying and prefer inline replies.

We recommend using a signature on replies, rather than trying to use a letterhead and attaching previous messages in replies.
