I have several different email account for different companies I work with, and each one has a different corporate font for emails. Anybody got any ideas how to quickly change this over when switching between accounts in Outlook? I don't want to have to revert to splitting into different Outlook profiles.

I have no idea where to start - I've researched it many forums and can't find any suggestion.

  • Well, Outlook allows you to set a default font (stationery), which is usually Calibri 11. However one company I work with prefers emails to use Trebuchet MS 10 (gray) and another prefers Segoe UI 11. I want to be able to switch from one to the other in a single click, rather than having to go into the font settings. Better still, a VBA script or Macro that could do it for me based on what account I had selected – gav Apr 28 '15 at 11:35

  • I have no idea where to start - I've researched it many forums and can't find any suggestion. However I've not given up because I can't believe that its never been thought of before or that there isn't somebody out there that's had a go at solving what is really a flaw with Outlook – gav Apr 28 '15 at 12:27
  • Fair enough. I added that comment to your question so readers know you have researched. – CharlieRB Apr 28 '15 at 12:44

I thought I should update this with the closest I have come to an answer so far.....

I have written a macro that changes the font of the selected text, and created a shortcut in the toolbar. Therefore I compose my email in the font I don't want to use, then select the entire reply and click the macro.

I can provide the code (which is quite simple) if anybody is interested
