AfxMessageBox really calls CWinApp::DoMessageBox, you can override that function with Classwizard and implement your own message box.  

I do not think you can modify the usual message box but you can implement your own where you will control everything.

You can do this way to get the font used by MessageBox:

NONCLIENTMETRICS temp;
SystemParametersInfo(SPI_GETNONCLIENTMETRICS, , &temp , );

You will get the font info in:
temp.lfMessageFont

Good luck!
