Windows 7: Windows Live Mail 2011 Message List Font Change??

Windows Live Mail 2011 Message List Font Change??

Does anyone know how to change the font of the message list in Windows Live Mail 2011? When I set the message list view to one-line view the subject of unread messages in the message list is bold Calibri and I can't stand it. When I read the email the font changes and is fine. When I change to two-line view the font is fine.

On my other laptop with Windows Live Mail 2011 the font is not Calibri and it's fine. The only difference between the 2 laptops is that I installed IE9 on this one before I installed Windows Live Essentials 2011. I have since uninstalled IE9 because I didn't like it. I'm not sure if that had anything to do with the difference of the one-line message view font.

I've searched high and low for a way to change the message view font in one-line view from Calibri.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks but that is just the font for composing emails. I'm asking the the message list where you see your emails in your inbox.

Problem fixed...I ended up having to format my primary drive and reinstalling everything Windows 7, Windows Live Essentials 2011, etc, etc. I didn't install IE9 this time and the font of the message list in the inbox is fine now. Looks like IE9 is what changed it.

You didn't actually solve any problems. To solve a problem, you have to first identify it, isolate the cause of the problem and identify a specific action to fix it. What causes the email list font to change? Where is the option to change it to your preference? How do you change it?

Re-installing Windows is overkill. It doesn't identify the specific cause(s) of your problem(s), the "fix" you experience is only a side-effect, and your boss probably won't approve you reformatting your machine at work every time you don't like an interface appearance or behavior.

Your solution is like solving a jerky transmission problem by buying a new car.

The first and easiest thing to try when Windows Live Mail appears "messed up" in some way is to do a repair of Windows Live Essentials via Programs and Features: Highlight WLE in the list, then choose uninstall/change at the top. In the next window choose "repair". All installed components of the Essentials package will be repaired, including Mail.
