Default email font at AOL
I used to have an AOL email address many years back. But I gradually moved on to Hotmail. On a recommendation of a friend, I created an account at AOL again. I like the interface but the page looks very busy compared to Hotmail's. As you can understand, and I am still warming up to AOL webmail. Is there a way I can set a default font which is used each time I write an email? Hotmail doesn't seem to have this option.
Yes, unfortunately, Hotmail does not let you pick a default email font. Each time you compose a new message, the font face, size and colors have to be chosen all over again. You are saved of all this trouble on Yahoo and on AOL - two of the best email services in the world. Here are the instructions to set up a default email font in the AOL account.
How to set the default email font when composing messages in AOL
Select "Settings" from the "Options" men; the link is located close to the top right section of the page. Move to the "Compose" section. You can now select the default font face, font size and text color. AOL also helpfully provides a preview that shows you how the chosen settings will look. Please do not forget to scroll down and click the "Save" button to have the changed implemented.
FYI, if the default font options are greyed, put a check mark for "Use Rich Text / HTML Editing". Thus, your chosen font will work only when rich text formatting is used.
AOL has tons of email settings and picking a default email font is just the tip of the iceberg. To get a quick introduction to these, read that article for details.
