Thanks Sue... Word is the editor for a new mail message. But if I try
replying, Word is not the editor. Can you help.

Hi Sue, Thanks for your reply. When I click on new message, the custom form
open with Word as editor but the issue is that when I click reply the form
"does not open with Word as editor".

Did you change the settings for the Reply action on the original form, on the
(Actions) page in design mode, as I suggested?

I have created a Custom form: "AUTO" and changed the reply action properties
to open the form: "AUTO". Additionally do we need to check the mail formats ?

Did you increment the version number and republish the form after you changed
the Reply action's form to the "AUTO" form? Try again and check the form
version number of the message to make sure that the new version of the form
is being loaded.

In Outlook 2003 or earlier, choose Tools | Options | Mail Format, and set the
default message format to Rich Text.

Open your form in design mode, and switch to the (Properties) page.Check the
box for "Use Microsoft Word as the editor" (or something like that).

Publish the form.

You can then change the mail format back to the usual default. The modified
form, however, will always use rich-text for its message body.

Are you saying that you want the form to use the same form for replies? If
so, you need to make that change to the Reply action on the (Actions) page of
the form. And, of course, the form will need to be published to the
Organizational Forms library.

Hi Sue, Thanks for your reply. When I click on new message, the custom form
open with Word as editor but the issue is that when I click reply the form
"does not open with Word as editor".

Did you change the settings for the Reply action on the original form, on the
