I use Lotus notes 5.06a.

When I creating a create/reply/forward a email, I found the default font size (10) is very small and the font style is not suiting my taste (Default Sans Serif).  Are there any ways to change the default font type and font size so that I have no need to change it every time I create a new mail ?

Can anyone help ?

Cheers

File, Preferences, User Preferences (or the R5 equivalent), Default Fonts, and select your default Sans Serif font.

You can also change the design of the mail database Memo form, but there is a third way: create an html signature file that uses the right font, install it, configure it and just one arrow-down key will put you in the signature area with the right font.

Yes.  I found it, but it only allow us to choose the font type but not font size.  Is this R5 problem ?

Oops... font size... no, can't change that. That would leave you with options 2 and 3.

And a little more complex: use stationery. In the mail view, go to Tools, then Stationery. Create a new Stationery, then use that stationery in subsequent mails. In the Inbox, under Tools, there is an option New memo - Using stationery...
