Problem with formatting messages in HTML

I use Microsoft Word as the editor for my e-mail.  When I create  a document in Word where my default font is Arial 16 point, and copy and paste it into a new mail message in Outlook, where my defaults are also set to Arial 16 pt, the text is automatically reformatted to Times New Roman with double hard returns.  I have to manually refortmat each mail message that is created outside of Outlook,

Is there a way that I can change the Outlook default HTML setting to Arial 16 pt and remove the extra hard returns, so that my formats are consistent between programs?

Hi kvora,
Have you tried taking off Word as your email editor? Does the problem still occurs?

After removing Word as the editor, it works.
