Outlook Express has an option called "Reply to emails in the format in which
they were sent" under the Send tab in options.  It does exactly as you were
asking.  I realize that this is Outlook Express, and not Outlook, which is
what the conversation thus far has been about.  So this observation may not
totally apply.  However, there is a way to make Outlook 2000 emulate Outlook
Express in some capacities.

I don't have Outlook 2000 installed, so I can't give you exact directions.
Somewhere in the options there is a way to turn off the exchange services
and "convert" Outlook to a pop-3 only service.  In the process of doing
that, it reloads a bunch of stuff from disk, then when you come back, you've
got the benefits of 2000, but a bunch of the menu items from Express are
available... namely, Services is Replaced with Accounts.  But, maybe, just
maybe, options includes some of the Outlook Express only options.  I wish I
could research this for you, but I only have access to Win 97 :(
