    Hi,
    Welcome to the Lounge.

    I assume you changed the settings on OE>tools>options>compose>compose fonts mail>settings?

    Then clicked on <big>apply</big> on your way out?

    Please excuse if this seems very basic but sometimes the most obvious is overlooked.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Not necessarily.
    Try IE options>general>fonts.
    This should change your <big>outgoing</big> message fonts.
    In OE it's for incoming message fonts.

    If one is using HTML or RTF based email, the size and font should be selectable from the toolbar. But if one is using "Plain Text" then the settings set and applied from the Tools options and in the "Compose" tab should take hold.

    this didn't work, and the fix suggested by Dave A. didn't work either. I think I'll just continue on with the 1 font and size limitation instead of going crazzzy trying to fix it
    Thanks to all for your responses.
