email text settings

My default font type for writing an email was Arial until 1 hour ago. Suddenly it has been changed without asking to Times Roman. I can live with this but how do I permanently change the default font type and size please? How did it change?

Thanks, Clive

Re: email text settings

Assuming you are using webmail, this is where you change font and size -

Re: email text settings

Hi Rising Star,
I know there is a tool bar but this only changes the settings for that specific email, not the default settings for when you start to type. Also, I would have to highlight the text to change it each time.

Thanks, Clive

Re: email text settings

If you put "email font" into the search bar at the top of this screen, you will find a number of (sometimes) animated exchanges on this subject. The consensus of opinion seems to be that you can't make your selected font default for all future emails - but VM might consider doing this in a future release. 

So, how you managed to change your default font is a bit of a mystery. 

Any other ideas welcome................................

Hi Rising Star,
thanks for the help.

The font type has now just as mysteriously reverted to Arial.

Re: email text settings

You don’t have a cat do you?

A response I once received about a mysterious change of computer setting was – “well the cat was in the room when I went out to make a cup of tea and it might have walked over my keyboard”. 

Strange things happen to computers.

I'm glad it's sorted itself.
