In Outlook when writing an email, sometimes the font changes (eg due to copy/pasting from somewhere else). In Word you can revert back to the default font by pressing Ctrl+SPACE. However, in Outlook this changes the font to Times Roman which is not the default Outlook font.

(I know you can use Format Painter but I'd prefer a keyboard shortcut.)


Problem solved in Outlook 2010 (Ctrl+SPACE works). Finally!
