How To Change The Font In An Email In Outlook

Submitted by D2D on Tue, 04/16/2019 - 09:39

A customer complained that the 11 point default font in Outlook is too small.  After making a snide remark about his age, this is what i told him:


In Outlook:

  1. Click File.
  2. Click Options.
  3. Click Mail
  4. Click Stationery and Fonts.
  5. Click one of the Font buttons.
  6. Select the typeface and size that you want.
    1. For replies I left the typeface alone and chose 14 pt. for the size.
  7. Click OK
  8. Repeat the typeface and size selection (steps 5,6, and 7) for the other 2 Font buttons.
  9. Click OK to close the dialog.

BTW, You don't get to choose the typeface or size for incoming emails.
