Outlook Express 6 printing does not represent message font size

Default font is Arial 12, but when I compose a message it still prints out in what appears to be 9 or smaller size.

Also, some messages that appear as smaller fonts print out in larger fonts.  Some that appear larger print smaller.

I assume ideally that OE would print the font style and size used when the message was composed.  Is there a setting for printing default or something that would cause it to be skewed?

Greetings, tts-winchester!
  Outlook Express and Internet Explorer share many files, including the fonts settings. With IE open, go to Tools > Interent Options. In the General page, click on Fonts and change the settings there.

Best wishes, war1

CrazyOne:  IE printing seems to be a fair representation of what's on the screen - WYSIWYG the problem is only in OL Express.  Can the settings be different in IE and OL?  I'm not at the machine and able to test for the next day or two.

war1:  My settings their only allow change of font, not font size.

OE stiil uses the settings in IE. OE has no font configuration that affects printing just IE.
