    email Font (MS OFFICE 2000)

    When in Outlook, and I select to make a new email, MS Word loads, the font is always Arial 10, I looked into the help menu to set and change this. It said select FORMAT, FONT ( pick my selection and click on the default ) I did this and now when I load the MS Word program, I get Baskervill Old Face 14, which is
    what I selected. But when I creat a new email, it still comes up to the Arial 10 and I have to change it every
    time, could someone help me make a Tool button to put it back or tell me how to keep it on what I want, because the directions did not work for me .... Thanks

    Re: email Font (MS OFFICE 2000)

    When you are within Outlook itself (not Word), go to the Tools menu and select Options. On the Options dialogue box, select the Mail Format tab and click on the Fonts button. This will give you some options of what fonts you want to use for sending emails. The font you set here should be used whether you are using Outlook or Word as your email editor.

    Hope this helps,

    Sure appreciate your answer, I was able to find the FONT settings section, after I removed the (check mark) from the option use Microsoft to edit email messages. This did not help, went into Word changed
    the options selection there, it did not help except when I open a new document in Word, but if Outlook opens it, it comes up 10 and Arial ... ?

    You should be able to set both the read font and the compose font if you are using the Outlook editor (see below) and plain text format (it sticks if you change to another format, but I didn't try setting another format as my default). Word-as-editor, I couldn't tell you. I also notice that your stationery can override your font settings, and vice versa.

    Re: email Font (MS OFFICE 2000)

    I believe you can accomplish what you want by following this route:
    1. While in Outlook, select New Mail Message.
    2. When Word opens with the email form, select Tools/Options/General
    3. Click on the E-mail options button (Lower right)
    4. Select the Personal Stationary Tab and there you will be able to select the Font for new messages and for replies and forwards.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to set other default paragraph formats.
    Hope this helps.
