Always reply messages in a fixed format automatically in Outlook

By default, Outlook will always reply with the initial format of the received messages. If you want to change the formatting when replying an email, you need to manually change it in the reply window or apply VBA code to achieve it. Here, with the Fixed Reply Formatting utility of Kutools for Outlook, you can easily set one format as the default replying format in Outlook and always use it automatically in the future.

Hi Sándor Vízi,
I don't quite understand your question about "send scheduled emails in html format".
The Fixed Reply Formatting feature of Kutools for Outlook is only available for reply emails..
Can you explain the question more clearly?
