Custom signatures not using selected font color in email body
This is more of an issue instead of feature feedback, but ever since upgrading Office 2016 from 2013, my users have an issue. We setup separate signatures "New" and "Reply-Forward" emails that have different font colors. So even though our "Reply" signature has the font to a specific color, as soon as you start typing in the body of the email, the color is the default black and not what the actual signature color is.
I also have faced this issue and could not solved.
2016, so you'll probably never see this, but I do have a solution for anyone with the same issue.
This is because the signature is a seperate part stuck at the bottom of the email.
What you could do as a by-pass would be to add a couple of blank lines at the top of the signature in the style you want. When doing your reply or forward, move the cursor down to this area with your mouse or the arrow keys.
Making and Editing signatures in outlook is not as easy as it should be.
I make my signature in Word and past it in outlook’s signature editing box.
A more advanced rich text editor would make editing signatures an easy task.
Ideally, I am looking for a way to change the font color of an email when it is replied to, or not replied to. Similar to read/undread emails being bold or as an option in conditional formatting. In my VERY basic knowledge of Outlook, the only obvious indicator of whether an email is replied/forwarded seems to be the column named "icon" and that is not listed as an optional field in any of the conditional formatting windows that I can find.
