Replying inline in Outlook with [Name]:


Did you know that there’s a feature in Outlook that prefixes your name automatically when you reply inline like this?

When you reply to somebody and start replying inline, it automatically changes the font to a new color and prefixes it with [GrantH] or similar.

    Yeah… but what bugs me is that in Outlook 2007, it makes the font/style of this prefix and the text you type identical. In Outlook 2003, it was much more sensible and made the prefix bold whilst keeping the reply text normal.
