Hi

I have office 2003 clients in a windows 2003 ad environment.

I have installed the office and outlook adm templates for group policy but can not find how to force our users how to use a particular font in outlook.

I have looked under User Configuration\Admin Templates\Microsoft Outlook 2003\Tools | Options\Mail Format\Stationery\Stationery Fonts

The only option available does not not include the choice of font.

Any help please?

thanks in advance

i have done it this way using the registry:

Outlook font settings are located in the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\MailSettings key.

Set up a pc with the settings you want, export the registry key and merge it to other users via login script.  Alternatively, use the office profile wizard (http://office.microsoft.com/en-gb/assistance/HA011362881033.aspx) to take the settings from the pc you have setup and then distribute to other pc's.

Default stationery is stored here

Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Common\MailSettings
Value name: NewStationery
Value type: REG_EXPAND_SZ
Value: example.htm (replace with your stationery settings)
