Programmatically Change Default Font for Emails

Is there a way to to set all Mail Users Default Font and Size ? I know you can change it via "Text - Set Current Font as Mail Default", however I would like to do this via a console command, formula or script.

AFAIK it's not possible with a Policy either. The only way seems to be a change of the Mail template, and then distributed it. Drawback: every time a new version of Domino is installed you have to re-edit the mail template.

Nothing happens when I change the font and size of the body field.

Am I missing something ?
There are probably several Body fields, in several Forms. Did you modify the one in the form called Message? The alias should be Memo.
That is the one I altered and nothing happened. I updated my personal mailbox during this test.
Did you try it out on your mail database first, without touching the template?
Yes I did. It stays on Default Sans with a size of 10.
I'll try for myself, tomorrow (02:14 here right now). Promise...

I need to change this for all users in the company because they want all emails sent with the font being Calibri Light\14.

I selected the entire form and change the font to Calibri Light\14. Everything changed except for the Body field.

I have no clue why this Body field will not change. I have change the font for both the Body and wBody fields.

Ok. Appreciated.
Turns out the Style setting in the properties box was the issue. Set it to None and you can change the font and size without any issues.

The other responses also work to some degree, so I have give a few points for those responses. In the end it was a Style issue.
