Quoted Messages not showing in Discussion Board when reply is posted through outlook


  • Hi,

    "Show Quoted Message/Hide Quoted Message" links are not showing in Discussion Board when reply is posted through outlook (in Flat View).

    It is working poperly from the Discussion Board UI , displaying "Quoted Messages".

    Appreciate your help.

  • Hey Divyesh,

    Which Outlook version you are using? Does it show original post (without quoted message link) ? Or it's totally missing when you reply ?

  • Hi Divyesh,

    I test and have a workaround, we can add a "Horizontal Line" below a reply from outlook, then this synced reply in discussion list will have "Show Quoted Message/Hide Quoted Message" link in SharePoint site, please check.

  • Hi Pratik,

    It is showing original post without quoted message link when we reply.

    this is is because Horizontal line is not getting added when we reply from outlook, but when you reply from UI, it works as line is added by SharePoint.  

    There are many users, so not sure at this point, which outlook version they are using.

  • Hi Daniel,

    I have tried adding horizontal line through outlook, but it is not working, still not able to see the Show Quoted message.

    Also, can't ask Users to do this activity before they reply to any posts. 

    Please susggest if there are any other ways the get "Show/Hide Quoted messge" link. 

    Thanks for the suggetions
