    Changing Default Font in Windows Mail

    Interesting reply. I am afraid Microsoft is going backwards, this is not an improvement at all. Windows live mail is miles a head of this pathetic mail app. This Mail app might be just sufficient for hand held tablet or phone. Why not bring back Windows Live
    Mail which is an excellent program? Please do not tell me that this is an improvement. I would say it is just just a gimmick.

    I understand that you can change the font for each email; However, this is really unacceptable and a step backwards. I totally agree with the comment that Windows Live Mail was greatly superior to the pitiful Windows 10 Mail App. Microsoft has consistently
    reduced capabilities with each new Mail program, Windows Live Mail was a step down from Outlook 6 (not Outlook Office) where you could easily add a MIDI to your email. If anyone knows of a program that comes close to WLM I would be interested.

    It's true, you can permanently change the font on your new emails but if you are replying to someone it again reverts to the tiny Calibri 11pt font. Is there a workaround for this or do I have to reset the font each time I reply to an email?

    Brian.
