Option to disable “quote only selected text on reply” feature
If some mail text is selected, only that text is set in quote part on reply. This behavior is not very convenient for me as a longtime user of Outlook for Windows desktop.
I want an option to disable it and let Outlook behave like Windows client.
Hi all, as of release 16.21 it is possible to disable “quote only selected text on reply” in Mac Outlook. Go to Outlook/Preferences/Composing and uncheck the
“Only reply to selected text” box.
Thanks for your support!

Please give us the option to disable this! I was searching for a way to disable it and found this site.
Super anoying future. Please disable this as soon as possible.
I agree. Disable. It is ridiculous.
Ditto. Please allow me to disable this feature by default in Preferences.
WORST PRODUCT FEATURE I HAVE EVER ENCOUNTERED!
IT FAILS PARITY WITH WINDOWS OUTLOOK AND ADDS ZERO VALUE TO MAC OUTLOOK USERS!!!!!!
GET RID OF THIS ASAP PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
cannot stand this feature! has anyone got a solution to disabling it?
Please provide option to disable this 'feature'

As a long time mac user I do use this feature but it would be good to ba able to toggle it off.

This is very shoddy design and proves Microsoft wants to keep office for Mac as a step-product and does not want to do anything to improve it to the standard of Office for Mac. The list of things that are there in Office for Windows and missing in Office for Mac is endless!!! For God's sake, we are not using Office for Mac for FREE!!! We pay for it just as we paid for Office for Windows!

This needs to be removed asap!
This needs to be fixed asap! This is driving me crazy every day.
Who even requested this feature? What is the use case and application need that this change made product fit?
Oh **** - i was so hoping for a fix.

Nice to see I'm not the only one. :)
But sadly MS doesn't seem to monitor this site. :S
Now at 1000 upvotes and counting...
Wow. Over 2 YEARS and 100 COMPLAINTS later and this still hasn't been taken care of. Amazing.
Would really appreciate this for both Mac and PC.

nice feature - but only if you can disable it :-)
@Microsoft - please go ahead and do the required :-)
I recommend on feature that when I pay to Microsoft, it will pay only the selected part of the amount. I will probably select the 0 :)
Please allow us to disable this "killer" feature.
