Quick Apple Mail Fix for HTML font size

Hi, just dropping in from raiding the lands of healthy heroes and creamy young virgins to let you in on a quick Apple Mail tip.

Do you use Apple Mail in an environment with Outlook?  In particular, do those Outlook users prefer HTML mail?  Do you receive mail from them with a microscopic font size?

Thanks to the tip I found here you can correct this issue.

  1. Close down Apple Mail (command-Q)
  2. Open the Terminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal)
  3. Type the following command: “defaults write com.apple.mail MinimumHTMLFontSize 13” (note: without quotes)
  4. Restart Apple Mail
  5. Squint no more.

Hope this helps.  Flying back out to meet up with my sister Vermithrax and raid a few kingdoms today.  Wednesdays are always fun like that.

  1. Hi, Do you have a terminal command for Outlook for Mac 2011? I am still having unPrOFessionAL eMAil messages sent with varying font sizes. Also, when I backspace the font in the message body turns into Helvetica.
