Increasing the Font Size for Internal GroupWise Messages

The default print size may be too small for internally sent e-mails in GroupWise. In my findings, e-mails from external systems printed OK, and if you increased your GroupWise font size, the recipient could print them a reasonable size.


I made a registry file to roll to users (see the example below). It sets the font size to Arial 11 for the GroupWise client 7.01 (untested on others), and then all e-mails authored with these new settings printed OK. Of course, you can customize this file for your own preferences.


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"Custom Colors"=hex:ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,\
"File Attach DoubleClick"=dword:00000001
"Outbox DoubleClick"=dword:00000001
"Message Attach DoubleClick"=dword:00000000
"Show Home Folder Help"=dword:00000001

Note: This solution was tested with Windows 2000/XP and GroupWise 7.01.
