I am running Windows Xp SP 2 with Microsoft Office 2003 Professional Edition installed on it.  When I am in Outlook replying to an e-mail, it allows me to type in my original font size (14), however, the text on the bottom portion of the e-mail is displaying a font size of 10.

Greetings, netlanhou !

When you refer to the text at the bottom, do you mean the original message that is quoted in the reply?  If so, the original email was sent with font size 10.  You can change the font size to 14 by highlighting the original text and selecting a different font.

Best wishes!

Hi netlanhou,

1. On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.  
2. Under Stationery and Fonts, click Fonts.  
3. Click Choose Font to open the Font dialog box for "When composing and reading plain text."  
4. Click to select the Font, Font Style, Size, and Effects. Click OK.  
5. Under Stationery Fonts, click to select Always Use My Fonts. Click OK, Apply, and then OK to apply the changes.

Let us know how you do.

It is not even clear what is the problem... so how this can be a PAQ? Unless the Asker shpws up, I stand behind the delete

Venabili,

The Asker question: When I am in Outlook replying to an e-mail, it allows me to type in my original font size (14), however, the text on the bottom portion of the e-mail is displaying a font size of 10.

The original text is size 10. Asker wants the original text to be larger. We answered the question.

You think it is the original mail at the bottom - but I am not sure this is the case. It may turn out to be a signature. Or a disclaimer. Or some addon. Or God knows what.
