    when creating new mail in outlook express 6, I change the font to any
    other font than "times new roman", after changing to rich text, and it always
    reverts back to default. Changing fonts in word etc.. works fine.

    When you say it reverts back to default, is this in the same mail where you changed the font setting ? Or when you create another mail later on ?

    Do you have it defaulted in tools/options/compose?

    Changing the compose fonts should do the trick. The information you enter there is stored in your registry,

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{yourcode}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0\Mail in the Font Name

    Check to see if it's there.

    Warning : modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. We cannot guarantee that problems resulting from modifications to the registry can be solved. Use the information provided at your own risk.
