When composing an email I am somehow defaulting to very large typeface. It is perhaps 40 points or so. It is naturally very difficult to use. The email when received is fine however. How can I fix this?

You can change the defaults in File>Options>Mail>Stationary and Fonts
From there you can change the default font settings for new messages, replies, and other types of mail.

I had already tried that with no success. Upon going there I saw normal settings. I had Arial 14 point for new emails. I did change it to comic sans 12 point. Still get the huge typeface when composing emails. l of course rebooted the pc. I did that three times. No luck.

Have you set a high zoom percentage for composing new email?

WOW! Thanks VERY much! That was exactly the problem. I did not even know that the magnification was even a feature. I guess that is why I didn't think to check it. I really appreciate the time you took to help me out! You are a GREAT EXPERT!
