Changing Outlook system font...

I woujld like my Outlook 2003 system font to be BankGothic.  By this I mean I'd like my mailbox and folder fonts to all be BankGothic.  My Mac mail client does this and I really like the way it looks so I wanted to set my outlook that way too.

Can someone tell me if and how to do this?

1.  Right-Click on the desktop
2.  Select Properties
3.  Click the Appearance tab
4.  Click the Advanced button
5.  Go through all entries in the Item list and change the font as desired.
6.  You'll also need to go through all Views in Outlook and change the font settings there too.  Some of them override the global settings in the OS.

Hi crp0499,

There is no way to change this from within Outlook.  You can change the font globally for everything on your PC, but I'm not aware of any way to do this for Outlook alone.  There may be a third-party utility out there somewhere that'll do this, it's hard to keep track of them all, but I'm not aware of one.

I DONT want to start a Mac vs Windows battle, but it only takes one click on my Mac and I can set the font I want in e-mail w/out affecting the rest of my PC.

I'm just glad Bill makes it so easy for us!


Thanks for the help.  I was aware of the method you detailed but was hoping there was a more simple method.

You wouldn't be starting a battle with me.  I agree completely.
