    Increase size of outlook fonts (Outlook 2003)

    I would like to increase all the font sizes in Outlook. I work on a large monitor and the font sizes/viewing fonts are too small. How can I change ALL fonts sizes (not just the email messages I send out): the folders names, email messaages received, etc.

    I do not want to into the display setting and change all of Windows fonts - just in Oultook. Please advise
    Thank you

    I think this comes up every time MS releases a new version of Outlook. You could try searching for threads about increasing font sizes in Outlook 2002 (Office XP) and see if there are some useful tips there. Of course, many things have changed in Outlook 2003, so maybe new thinking will be required. (In which case, someone running Outlook 2003 should jump in here!)

    Changing the font size in all of Outlook - without changing the default display settings is a fairly tall order. If you know some HTML coding, you might find you can glean something out of <!post=this post,141604>this post<!/post> (and possibly its related posts). HTH

    When I make changes to the display settings, it changes the toolbars and the left pane with the folders. It does NOT change the right pane with the email messages, subject line, etc. Any sugggestions? I did try to search the threads but did not find any thing.

    The font size for the text in "tabular" views can, in Outlook 97-2002, be set on the View menu. Look for something similar to current view, then define views (or if you only want to affect the current folder, Customize Current View). Once you have defined the view the way you like it, you can apply it to all your folders. (You might need a few different views, since the columns probably will be different for different folders, but you get the idea.)

    Check out "View, Arrange By, Customize", and then the 'Other Setting button'.
