We're received several inquires like this one, and thought it was high time to clear this up.
How can I change the default font type in my outgoing mail? Mine does not keep the settings I've selected and it's very irritating to have to change the font every time I write to someone.
Here's the deal. To change mail fonts for all mail you send (not just a specific one), you have to change your Windows default font settings.
- Right-click on the Windows desktop, then choose "Properties".
- Select the "Appearance" tab.
- In the "Item" drop-down menu, choose "Message Box".
- Choose the desired font.
- Click OK.
NOTE: The above steps will also modify the font for the TO:, CC:, and BC: address lines, of a message, in GroupWise 5.5. GroupWise 5.2 does not have a way of modifying the font for the address lines.
Using Enhancement Pack
Update: If you are using the Enhancement Pack, it's even easier. (Several readers pointed out that we forgot to explain this. Sorry!) Here's what you do:
- Open a new message using GroupWise Enhancement Pack.
- Select View and change to HTML.
- Set the font and pitch as desired.
- Right-click on the font.
- Select Set Current Font as default.
Update: For info about how to change the default font size for incoming and outgoing HTML e-mail, see this Tip.
