Windows 7: Outlook 2010 (x-86) FONT TOO BIG and can't make smaller

Zoom Button

Not to be insulting your intelligence, but have you tried altering your Zoom in the Format Text menu and resetting it to 100%?

Search your computer for ""and rename it to something else. This issue is probably caused by your document template being messed up, renaming the file will make the computer generate a new empty one.

32Bit & 64Bit Windows 7

A bit late to reply with this, I was having the same problem. Open a new email, type something onto the email. Hold down Ctrl and use the wheel on the mouse to zoom in/out to increase or reduce the font size.

Dungbug- Your solution worked like a charm for me. Infact i didnt believe your solution the first time. I could not believe it still, but it works mate !!

I have tried this stationery and Fonts a zillion times before and though the font got set right, it would never reflect in a new mail and used to have huge sized fonts.

You're welcome, simple solutions are usually the best. I'd tried adjusting Font size to no avail, glad it's helped someone out.
