    Outlook Fonts not Sticking

    I experienced the same problem. There is a permanent solution suggested to me some time ago (I think by someone at Microsoft) which I suggest you try. It involves using a stationery theme rather than choosing the font directly and then editing the theme's htm file to suit your choice of font...

    Default Font in Outlook 2013

    Thanks Diane Yes, I used the suggested method since reading it in your tips - that's what I tried to describe in the first line of my question. It has always worked fine for me until recently, when the Times New Roman font started overriding my setting, although only for the new message font...

    Contacts Sort Order

    I use Office 365 Home Premium (Windows 7 Pro) and I am frustrated by the following glitch in Outlook Contacts: In Options/People I have both “Default Full Name” and “Default File As” set to “First, Last”. When I add a new contact and enter first and last name directly into the “Full Name” box...

    Search on Category in Outlook 2013

    After posting this thread I explored the search function further and found the solution to my problem: Click on the +More button in the Search Ribbon and you will see the full list of search criteria. Click on Categories and this will add a second search box below the main search box. This...

    Search on Category in Outlook 2013

    When you want to search your mails by Category and you click on "Category" in the ribbon, you get a list of only about 15 categories. I use a lot more since this is the way I organise my mails in stead of separate folders. At the bottom of this list you have only two other options: Either "Any...

    Default Font in Outlook 2013

    It's me and Outlook fonts again! I'm presently being hounded by a glitch that insists that my default font for new messages and notes in my contacts will be Times New Roman (Times). The best method to permanently set the default font is (with the cursor in the body of a new message) Format...

    Point Size for Fonts in Custom Font Style (Outlook 2013)

    Dear Diane In an earlier thread on the fonts topic you correctly explained that the only functional permanent way to change the default heading and body fonts is along the route: New Email/ click in e-mail body/ Format Text/ Change Styles/ Fonts/... From this point you either choose one...

    Outlook 2010 default font

    Thanks again, but unfortunately the fonts.reg fix did not work. Could the use of a theme not be a possible workaround? I noticed that the fonts embedded into a theme do not change. The problem is that none of the themes included in the program uses arial 11pt as body font. Do you know whether a...

    Outlook 2010 default font

    (I replied earlier but don't know what happened to it) Thanks, but the first option did not work. I am also not experienced enough to change or export keys in the Registry. Does it mean anything that the sub-heading Default at the place in the Registry you referred me to, appears in...

    Outlook 2010 default font

    Thanks for the prompt reply. Your first suggestion unfortunately did not work. As for the second: Although I was able to get to the place in the Registry you referred me to, I don't know how to export or change the keys. Perhaps it will help if I tell you what I see at the specific...

    Outlook 2010 default font

    I cannot change the default font for new messages permanently. My choice will remain unchanged during a session, but when I restart Outlook the default has by itself changed back to Calibri 11pt. I do not use a theme. My choice (arial 11pt) will be "left alone" for forward & reply mails and for...
