Setting the default font size composing mail in aol browser

Good morning, I have read all of your solutions, but can't find one for mine. My dad uses aol as his browser, and would like to set the default font at 14 when he composes mail (he does not use broadband or dial-up, but rather Comcast high speed internet). The default setting is at either 10 or 12, and he hates having to use the arrow you have mentioned, to change the font size every time he responds to and composes mail. Can you please help us? Thank you Jeff, I forgot to say that I do have the free AOL version.
Nancy again.

When I reply to an e-mail on OUtlook 2010, the font size is very small - and I cannot read the original or what I am typing. Any ideas on how to restore the normal size


Having trouble seeing that small default font of Microsoft Outlook emails? There are three ways of making Outlook email text bigger.
The first includes increasing the text size of the outgoing email messages.
The second includes increasing the text size of messages that are replied to or forwarded.
The last includes making all the text of incoming emails larger as well.

Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.
Find the Personal Stationary tab, then find and click the Font button located under the New Mail Messages heading.
On the Font tab that appears, there will be a variety of options including changing the type of font, style, size and color.


Find the drop-down menu that is under the Size heading and select a bigger number.
Click OK and the new setting will take place the next time a message is composed.

Replies or Forwarded Mail
Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.

Find the Personal Stationary tab, then click the Font button that is located under the Replying or Forwarding Messages heading.
Find the drop-down menu that is under the Size heading and select a bigger number.
Click OK and the new settings will take place the next time a message is replied to or forwarded.

Incoming Email Messages
Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.

Look for the Display Font heading on the Personal Stationary tab and increase the size the size of the font by selecting a larger number.
This will increase the text size for all plain text incoming email.
However, it will not increase the text size of incoming HTML emails.

Set the option to read all incoming email as plain text if it is necessary to increase the text size of all incoming emails.
To do this, go to Tools, then click on Options, then look for the button that says Email Options and click Read all Standard Mail as Plain Text.

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

AOL Mail


I do not use AOL, but can suggest a workaround that may or may not help -
Windows XP and Vista both have a utility to magnify parts of the screen.
  • All Programs.
  • Point to Accessories.
  • Point to Accessibility.
  • Select Magnifier.

Setting the default font size composing mail in aol browser


Hi - no problem. I can help you out. When signed on to AOL, look at your top tool bar. Click on Settings. This will open the Help window. After the Help window opens, look under the "T" section and click on Text and Font. Clicking on this will open a smaller box labeled Font and Text settings. After the box is open you can change the size and look of your font. Just use the little arrows next to the font and size. The sample will change to show you how it will look in your emails. You can also change the color, bold or not, italics or not, etc. if you wish. It's all there. Once the sample looks the way your dad wants his text in his emails to look, just click on the Save button at the bottom of the box and you'll be all done. If this solves the problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

My computer defaults to outlook express 6 when I try to respond to any posting on craigslist or respond to other postings, and outlook dose not work. I can type a message but when I try to sentd it , it...


Check the font being called by OE6. You can do this by opening Outlook Express. Click on Tools => Options => Compose. Make sure the font and size are something your computer uses. Personally, I use ARIAL at 11 point. You might also check to make sure a stationery design isn't set for OE6. That setting is under the same tab as the fonts.

I hope this helps! Please post rating, if it does.
