For my 1024x768 resolution, how can I get,
for example, a 16x24 font for my DOS window?
The greatest available is the 10x18 font.

The other fonts, 12x16, 16x8 and 16x12 are unusuable.
for they appear not well proportioned.

You can't have a 16x24 font in a DOS window, but if you want the window appears bigger and more proportinal or readable, you can type one of these lines:
     MODE CON LINES=43
     MODE CON LINES=50
It will solve your problem.

Hang a magnifying glass in front of your monitor.

Are your end users making ugly email signatures?

Have you left it up to your end users to create their own email signatures? Are they forgetting to add the company logo or using garish font colors? Take control and ensure all users have the same email signature.

johnsm answer is clever but not very helpful.

I know of no way to add DOS screen fonts.  The only solution I can tell you would be to run full screen mode.  Use ALT enter to toggle this.

Dear Bogey,
of course, I can do Alt-Enter. The problem ist tha in full
screen DOS Winfax Pro 4 dos not answer the calls.

Maybe I went away from my computer place and forget to do the Alt=Enter...

Since everybody's having so much fun with this question, why not use the old mode command, and go to a 40 char per line screen - that'll get you some big ugly characters!
