    Outlook Font sizes Keeping Stable betwn 2 machines (office 2003 sp1)

    I have a 15 inch office laptop screen with the outlook font sizes that I like. I travel with a light 2.7 pounder 12 inch laptop screen and copy the outlook.pst over to the travel machine where I need different font sizes to make outlook readable and when I get back to the office I copy the outlook. pst back so it is always in sync.
    Is there a way of Maintaing My Outlook font settings on each machine so that when I copy the pst over it does not overwrite the font setting, OR more accurately I can run some file to restore the font settings.

    Some fonts in Outlook, particularly in the interface, are determined by Windows, but the rest is set in your View definitions. Macros, written in VBA, have little ability to change the details of View settings, except by changing an XML string. We had a thread entitled Lines Between Emails (2003) in which we tried to change the XML (changing grid line color), and although it seemed to work in Outlook 2002 (XP), it did NOT work in Outlook 2003. I'm not sure you should have high expectations for that approach.

    Maybe there is another way, using other avenues or tools. I'm not familiar with any myself.
