    Hi Guys,

    I have a question. In my environment i want all people to use HTML format as standard in Outlook 2013. So when somebody forwards an email that is in plain text, i want him to send his mail in HTML, instead of plain text too.

    I installed an ADMX template for Outlook 2013 in my GPO and modified this setting:
    Microsoft Outlook 2013/Outlook Options/Mail Format/Internet Formatting/ Message Format: Disabled.

    Why Disabled? Because the gpo says: 'If you disable this policy setting, Outlook uses HTML as the default e-mail format and users will not be able to change it'.

    It doesn't work. When i forward a plain text email, it changes my body and signature in plain text too.

    I found something on the internet for a registry setting for Editor Preference in HKCU\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\15.0\outlook\options\mail.
    I made a Editor Preference but i can't find the right decimal for it.

    Can somebody help me with this?
