Outlook XP: How can I define unique font per Outlook profile?

Posted on 2006-05-10
Last Modified: 2013-12-03
We have several Outlook profiles on one computer and each user wants their own font. I noticed changing to one type of font in one profile affects all the other user profiles in Outlook.

Is there a way to assign unique fonts to each Outlook profile?

    Well, there is no technical way of doing this so the best option to do is create 'Identidies' for each user using Outlook. It is much safer and starts up when you run Outlook. To do this, go into File -> Identidies -> Manage Identidies. It will take a while getting used to but I don't think there is another solution.

    Isn't Manage Identities Outlook Express, not Outlook XP?

    Yes it is, sorry. I do not currently have Outlook XP installed on my computer - didn't know it wasn't added in new feature.

    I found the answer elsewhere. One needs to create a unique Windows profile for each user.
