One of my coworkers is handicapped with restricted vision and needs a very high contrast on his workspace. This works well for most applications, but it's not working for outlook-mails send as html/rich text, where a lot of other coworkers send colored mailtext, which is shown in grey in the high-contrast theme of Windows.

So I'd like to set his Outlook 2010 to either show text-only mails in the default (bigger) font or overwrite the default style in the mail with a custom setting to make his life easier. However, I did not find a way, if the mail already has a style applied by the sending user. Any hints?

You could change all incoming mail to plain text and then set the plain text font size, etc..

  1. Click the File menu > Options
  2. On the left click Trust center > Trust center settings > E-mail security.
  3. Enable both options: Read all standard mail in plain text and Read all digitally signed mail in plain text.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Click Tools > Mail Format > Stationery and Fonts.
  6. Click on Fonts for Composing and reading plain text messages.
  7. Select the required Font and click OK.
