You dont unless the application provides a way of setting the font. You can set fonts for systemwide appearance in the appearance controll panel but since most applications are not written by apple but by 3rd party companies they choose to use their own font.

Thanks for your swift reply, pls help for:

- out look express 4.0
- The appearance is OK (I can see my letters appears with my favorite font), but when printing it is another!

Thanks.

In the outlook express, I printed out some mails which I sent and received.

Oh...in email the font doesnt matter as the person on the other end probably has a font set for themselves anyway. When you send an email its stripped of things like font information and becomes straight ASCII text. Then on the other end the ASCII text is received and the users email viewer assigns it their own font. That is unless youre sending HTML emails which is a big no-no as many of us use email viewers that arent Microsoft or Netscape controlled. Pine on unix for example makes HTML email REALLY hard to read. The only advantage is that HTML can store font information. But then you run into another caveat. If the other user doesnt have the font YOU used installed the font you so carefully chose will default to their settings.
