Menu at top of OE format scroll down and choose rich text if you use lots of different fonts. Then click the cursor into the email you 're writing. If you just want one font for all go to options and choose compose tab where you can select your fave font.
Hi, I tried typing some text and clicking the message pane but the font option in the format menu is still greyed out. If I click 'Reply' to an unread message all the options are avaliable. The fonts are avaliable in the main window 'Tools' 'Options' 'Compose' but that seems to be a long way around it. Cheers, Bill
