When composing a message in Rich Text (HTML) why does my chosen font
(Verdana/Regular/14) as shown correctly in the formatting toolbar, change to
size 12 immediately I type the first letter into the message body? The size
defaults to 12 whatever font type is chosen. Creating a personal stationery
type with the Wizard produces exactly the same result. I can understand this
default size 12 if Plain Text is being used but not in Rich Text. The font
sizes behave perfectly well in Ms Word.

Open: >Outlook Express and go to: >Tools >Options >Compose >Fonts >Mail (at
the top it is the first heading and press >Settings.... that will change
your font default.
good luck,
