If I receive an incoming TLS encrypted message from another email provider like outlook/hotmail, will my reply in transit from gmail to outlook/hotmail be encrypted by default as well?

TLS transport security between federated servers is fairly common now, however this is not encrypted email.

Gmail does not support email encryption.The content of your email is NOT encrypted, nor the replies. The email content is in clear text on all the servers involved.
