Word as Editor?

'when i sent a message .It reach the recipient ok .
but as soon as I press reply..."

I'm confused. Are you sending a message with bullets to your client, or replying to a message from your client?

I notice you specified a '1.' as the original bullet. Outlook 2003 will only format a "dot" bullet, not numbers. This implies someone is using Word as their e-mail editor (Tools, Options, Mail Format). I suspect the original Word numeric bullets are being lost when the Reply is edited because the Reply is in either Rich Text or Plain Text format.

Outlook will check your spelling even if you don't use Word as your editor (Tools, Options, Spelling tab).
