.Like I said I've been searching high and low for this answer and I figured if there was an answer that I couldn't find it would be here. Lately I'm starting to get all kinds of spam in the subject line in the middle section of my Outlook which is set up differently than most so it's Body, where the emails information is shown as is where it's from the subject line etc. all the sudden last week and 1/2 two weeks I'm getting a lot of bold kind of weird Italics font which is way different than the font I have chosen for my emails in that body. There obviously spam I'm wondering is it possible to filter any emails that are not the same font that I have selected for that section?

Sure I'd be happy to provide a screenshot, I had already deleted them but I move them back into my inbox so you could see what they look like. I left some original emails in their and of course blurt out any sensitive information. I'm sure you bill tell by this image what I'm talking about.

Thanks as always for your help Diane

Try resting the view - its either conditional formatting or font changes in Other Settings - both in View settings. Best guess is Conditional formatting. Resetting the view should fix either, but if it doesn't change Other Settings, the default fonts in other settings is Segoe UI Regular 8.

I've already said my conditional formatting to the way I wanted, I've also made sure my view settings a proper. The only reason I posted this is because there's a way they're getting around our settings and having their own fonts and styles to attract attention to their emails. There 100% spam so I just delete them I was just thinking if there was a way to filter Them out it would make life easier.

I would prefer not to post that in the forum because it includes obviously, my personal email information. However if you're interested I wouldn't a problem with sending it to you in a PM?

Here's a dumb question but I've not been able to find a way to PM you. If I click on your name and picture and start a conversation is that a private message to you? When I look in my inbox it also says start a conversation so I'm assuming that conversation is used on this form for both PMs and for anything in the Inbox?

This is the subject:
Subject: =?UTF-8?B?8J2Zj/CdmZ3wnZma8J2ZriDwnZms8J2ZlvCdmaPwnZmpIPCdmanwnZmkIPCdmZnwnZma8J2ZqPCdmanwnZmn8J2ZpPCdma4g8J2ZqfCdmZ3wnZme8J2ZqCDwnZmr8J2ZnvCdmZnwnZma8J2ZpCDwnZmX8J2ZmvCdmZvwnZmk8J2Zp/CdmZog8J2ZqfCdmZ3wnZmaIPCdmaXwnZmq8J2Zl/CdmaHwnZme8J2ZmCDwnZmb8J2ZnvCdmaPwnZmZ8J2ZqCDwnZmp8J2ZnfCdmZrwnZme8J2ZpyDwnZmo8J2ZmvCdmZjwnZmn8J2ZmvCdmakuLi4=?=

It's something with the UTF encoding that cause the font to change - I'm not sure of the specifics as to why outlook cant display it as normal text though.

Yes that's what I figured, I just figured that the scammers have figured out a way to make their email Standout. I was just wondering if you were aware of it and if there was a way to filter them out but apparently not I do appreciate all your help

The standout part is the result of the character set it uses (which is why it needs encoded) and how outlook handles it. I dont think they use it so much to stand out, but because it makes it easier to slip through some filters.

It looks like it was good enough to slip through cloudmark: X-CM-Score: 0. If cloudmark has an option to score specific characters sets as more likely spam, that might help.
