Change font in Outlook Express emails (messages body text)

Unless someone else has manually changed it, your copy of Outlook Express will automatically use 9 points Arial as default font for any email message you compose from that particular copy of your email program (this setting is saved in the program itself, nothing to do with a same email account you may check from several copies of Outlook Express). This text setting is a legible and large enough font, but this is something you can customize to personalize your emails. This tutorial shows you how to change the default email font in Outlook Express, and gives you a few pointers as to text size and font family to use or avoid. (Note that, regardless of your current default settings, you can always manually change the font size, font family, and other text formatting options from the new email window itself.)

From this point on, all new messages you compose from Outlook Express will automatically use your new default font, which you can manually change on an email by email basis!

Tip: if you do not see any difference, you may have previously configured Outlook Express to use plain text for emails - go back and restore the original text setting to see your new font and formatting options.
