    Font colors in Windows Mail responses

    Is there a way in Windows mail to alter the color of the font in replies? Mine are coming out that sick green.

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    Um, duh. Thanks Ted. I had looked there, but somehow, saw the font but looked right past the color, that was set to "Custom."

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    I find that the default fonts are so small that Elderly folks can hardly read their email.
    (often as small as 9 point)

    When I set up any email program for a customer, I go through that font setup area with my customer and suggest to them a larger and maybe even BOLD font. I use 14 point BOLD for my own email, and most of my customers agree that's a good size for their elderly friends to read.

    Think of your email recipients when making settings like that. What looks good enough to you, may not be good for others.
    Also, remember that not everybody has a 22" screen. I'm still seeing lots of 15" screens among my customers. Text in emails can be awfully small on a 15" screen.

    Cheers mate!

    DrWho, I couldn't agree more. I often, being one of your Elderly folks, set my font(s) to 4pt at least as well. I do so in my mail going out as well, figuring the recipient might take the hint. Sometimes they do, sometimes they don't!
