Try again. It will if the email is plain text. It's a step in the right direction, but you're right. I haven't seen any other way to force a font. Mainly because Outlook uses Word to display emails. Word shows what it's given.
I already knew that, jelyman, yes, it does work on plain text messages only
if one changes the font in "Options">"Mail">"Stationery and Fonts">"Composing and reading plain text messages":
However, the fact remains, as the OP asked:
Outlook 2010 will display the the email in whatever font it was typed in, and if it's a HTML mail, in whatever fonts is set by the HTML tags. However is there a way to set a default font the Outlooks displays the messages in, just like you can set the default font in web browsers, regardless of what the developers specified.
this will only partially solve the issue presented by the OP.
