How to change default font size type & color in Outlook to allow users to arrange components to suit their requirements and preferences. Microsoft Outlook is a right and balanced mixture of flexibility and customization, as it even allows you to change default font size, type, and color.
Change Font size, Type & Color in Outlook
The default font in Outlook for creating, replying to, and forwarding email messages is 11-point Calibri. However, users can change the default font, including its color, size, and style such as bold or italic.
It is important to note that for the message to appear in the same font for the recipient, they must have the same font installed on their computer. If the font used is not installed on the recipient’s computer, then the mail program will likely substitute an available font. Both the older and newer versions of Outlook have the email font settings located under the File tab.
Next, choose the “Options” link on the left side, and then select the “Mail” option.
In the “Stationery and Fonts” option under “Compose messages”, locate the “Personal Stationary” tab and select the “Font” option.
Click the Font tab, then click the desired font under Font. Select the desired font style and size, then click OK. You can even pick the color here.
To change the default font style for messages that you reply to or forward, do the following:
Click on the File tab and then select Options. Once in the Options menu, click on Mail and then look for the heading that says “Compose messages.” Underneath that heading, click on “Stationery and Fonts.” On the Personal Stationery tab, look for the heading that says “Replying or forwarding messages.” Under that heading, click on “Font.”
This is where you can change the font options for future messages. When you’re done, click OK on the Font, the Signatures and Stationery, and the Outlook Options dialog boxes.
