Cleartype in OE 6

  Confab 18:36 12 May 2006

I installed IE7 beta last night and all seems to be well apart from the fact that I hate cleartype. I managed to turn it off in IE and on the desktop. The problem I have is in OE. Most of the text is fine but the text within the body of an e-mail is displayed in cleartype. I’ve tried the reg tweak but it didn’t work. Does anyone know how to turn this off?

In OE, Tools > Options > Compose > Font.
Is this what you were looking for?

Thanks rmcqua but no.

If anyone has IE7 then you know that the default font has to cleartype which IMHO is blurry and hard to read.

I've removed the cleartype option in IE and from my desktop but OE is causing me issues. Most of the text is in standard font but the preview pane text is in cleartype.

Its driving me nuts!!
