When I print emails out they are coming out in larger font than normal.

I've can't seem to change it.

Anyone Know how I can get round this problem.

Don't know if this is for print outs or just for on-screen but try going to tools>options then go to the 'read' tab. Click 'fonts' and you can choose small, smaller, medium etc. T.

View>Text Size>select Medium (the most common used).

It's a peculiarity of OE that it sometimes switches to Large Tect, hence your e-mails being printed so large.

Outlook Express uses the Internet Explorer font size settings for printing.

To change them, select View, Text size from the Internet Explorer menu.
If you've tried this to no effect, Microsoft suggests that the reason for this is that the print drivers are not set to the same font size as the text. To reset them, start Outlook Express and set the font size to the smallest by
choosing Tools, Options. Select the Read tab, click Fonts, choose Smallest, hit Ok then close Outlook Express. Next, start Internet Explorer, select View, Text Size, Smallest then close Internet Explorer.
Finally repeat the above steps setting the font size back to Medium.
