How do you permanently change the font size of the reading pane in Outlook? We've figured out how to use the scroll bar in the bottom right corner or ctrl+mouse wheel but that only changes the font size of the current email. As soon as you click another one the view resets.

We figured out how to increase the font size of the middle column (View settings>Other Settings>Column and Row font) but how do you increase the reading pane font size so that it stays?

I tried creating the macro but it didn't fix the issue unfortunately.

The macro only works in open messages. Did you try changing the web settings? It won't work for all mail (especially bulk mail, like advertising) but should work on most personal mail.

I tried changing the web settings inside Word and it didn't seem to make a difference. Did I need to restart after changing those settings?
