Erratic Tools on Outlook Express

  Lemur 14:48 14 Mar 2003

My operating system is Windows XP.

Why is it that, when I "Create Mail" ie: start a new message, I always get a tool bar showing: Font, Font size, Bold, Italics, Underline, Font Colour, Align, Justify etc., but, when I reply to an e.mail, I do not get these options? I have tried to customise my main toolbar, but cannot find these options.

Thank you.

You will see that I have had a NIL response to my query. Could someone please have a think about this one as, it is still a problem, and I feel that the answer is probably quite obvious and easy, when you know how?

Many thanks.
