How can I change the font so that when a message is opened and the font may be 8pt. , how can I make it so the message opens at 12 point instead. Justb to be clear, the user i office 2007 opens an outlook message and the pane shows the message in 8py. I would like it ot open in 12pt. How? I have the mail itself with all the font settings but whe n a message is opend it shows in a smaller type. Now I am guessing that this could be because the user that sent the message is sending it in 8pt. but the user recieving would like it to open in 12pt. Is this doable?
