We have a few employees who use very large fonts in their email and we want them to get back to using a normal 12 point size font. The question  have is this:

Can Outlook 2007 be set to display email in a larger display size so that these employees can reduce their standard font size back to 12 point, but when the email is displayed, the size appears larger?

If the message is prepared in 12-point font in New Message, then it will display in 12-point font. You have to use one or the other. It won't change the way you want.

Hi John,

I was wondering if there is a display setting for viewing emails in a certain screen size.  For example, when I receive an email that has font too small, I hold the Ctrl key and scroll and that makes the email display get bigger or smaller, depending on scroll wheel up or down.  That makes me there the display can be changed to be larger or smaller.

No. I adjust screen icon and message fonts in Windows myself. These do not carry over to Outlook Message display.
