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
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Novell\GroupWise\Client\Setup] "FirstRun"=dword:00000000 "Custom Colors"=hex:ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,\ 00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,\ ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00,ff,ff,ff,00 "ReplyIncludeText"=dword:00000001 "File Attach DoubleClick"=dword:00000001 "LaunchNotifyAtStartup"=dword:00000000 "Outbox DoubleClick"=dword:00000001 "Message Attach DoubleClick"=dword:00000000 ".DefaultSaveFormat"=dword:00000001 ".AttachmentPromptSize"=dword:ffffffff "DoNotCreateHTMLMessages"=dword:00000001 "DoNotViewHTMLMessages"=dword:00000001 "DoNotViewBlankHTMLMessages"=dword:00000000 "DiscussReplyIncludeText"=dword:00000000 "Show Home Folder Help"=dword:00000001 "DefaultsForRead"=dword:00000000 "PlainTextReadFontName"="Arial" "PlainTextReadFontSize"=dword:0000000b "PlainTextComposeFontName"="Arial" "PlainTextComposeFontSize"=dword:0000000b
Note: This solution was tested with Windows 2000/XP and GroupWise 7.01.
