    I went into "Quick Steps" and edited the rule to hit "Ctrl-Shift-1" to "reply to all and delete original message".

    What about a Rule, a Macro, or a VBA routine?

    So there is no way to set the default to always delete the original note when you reply to it?... What if you want to reply to all and delete?... This could be disappointing if I had high expectations.

      I have been told by our IT dept that there is no way to set it up always delete once you reply. And, I have not found a solution online. Frustrating.
