Outlook 2000 and message fonts
Posted on 2002-03-09
Ok here is the deal. When I had Outlook 2000 installed all the received messages were in the fonts especially the size of the font that the sender had set. One problem with this is that if I launch IE6 from a link inside of the message it caused IE6 to resize the font to that which the Outlook message had. Also when I replied to the message Outlook would not accept the Font settings I wanted to use. Now the curious thing here is I use OE and I can set the fonts of the received and sent messages to what I want and it works and it has no affect on resizing the fonts in IE6. I have tried everything I could think of to force Outlook 2000 to accept my font settings regardless of the settings the sender used and nothing worked. I spent a lot of time looking for every imaginable configuration in all of Outlooks config tools and tried setting and resetting them and doing this and that and it had no affect.
What I am after is a way to set the fonts I want to use in Outlook and for the settings to stay as I set them and not affect IE6 in any manner. I have uninstalled Outlook because of my stated problems because the program is a bit useless to me unless I can do what I have asked. OE does as I want but I would like to use Outlook for various reasons but at this point the hassles just ain't worth it.
