First, you should be aware that whatever you use as the font when you write a new mail, may not necessarily really reach the recipient and be shown there in the same way. Sometimes the font information is not preserved and even if so, the recipient may not have this font. Internet E-Mail is not a print medium and not WYSIWYG.

Only starting with Notes 8.5.2 (the most current version - or was that feature already present in 8.5.1?) a user can itself set a font for new e-mails permanently. In previous versions, a Domino administrator or developer would have to modify the design of your mail database or of the underlying design template to set a different font.

So, unless you can upgrade to 8.5.2 yourself, you need to ask your local Domino administrator for help.
