    Outlook Numbering (2000 SR-1 9.0.0)

    Outlook Numbering - I have set the default font to Arial 10, yet the font for numbering is Arial 12. I have not been able to find a way to set the font for numbering. Does anyone have any suggestions?

    Thanks for any replies.

    Is Word your email editor? Or are you using Outlook rich text format?

    I am using Outlook as my email editor and I have the message format set to HTML.

    I'll be darned. I tested it. My default was already 10 point. Changing the default to 12 left what looks to be Times New Roman numbering font and it does NOT appear to be 12 point. Ewww. We'll have to look into that one.

    The font seems to be set as the font used in IE > Tools > Internet Options > Fonts > Web page font
    but I can not see a way to change the size.

    Outlook is a lousy HTML editor. You can probably change your default by setting up new stationary in FrontPage or even NotePad, and defining a font style for your ordered lists. If you prefer to write the HTML directly, it looks something like this:

    [list=1]

    If you define a style, the code would be more like this:

    <STYLE>
    ol {FONT-SIZE: 10pt; FONT-FAMILY: Arial}
    </STYLE>

    (But I haven't run this through a browser to check it.)

    Thanks for your response. It may well be that Outlook is a poor HTML editor, but Plain Text and Rich Text Formats do not offer numbering as a option, nor can you install it on the toolbar. How do you set up stationary in NotePad?

    The only answer appears to be to use Word as the editor as it solves the font size problem, but I do not want to incur the security risks involved in doing this.

    Oops, my bad for misspelling stationery. I don't use it, but if you search the word in online help you will get the lowdown.
