Re: Query about font size in emails

Dear Carl

It is possible if a little clumsy. I use Thunderbird and I can set up
to send in HTML but with a switch so that if recipients in the address
book are not listed as able to receive HTML then they get sent plain
text. Then I set him to receive HTML, but nobody else. I'm not sure
that I like that solution though.

Best wishes

He was not aware of the existence of plain text and had assumed that emails were designed to be in html
Never thought I'd hear myself saying this, but the expedient thing might be for you to switch to html mail just for him. It depends on how readily your mail client allows this. At work I use Outlook, and one of the convenient things about it is that with one click I can switch from my plain-text default to html or rtf, for things like inserting tables from a Word doc or inline photos. On the other hand, maybe there's a newly-available solution at his end: a quick Google search indicates that Hotmail has been absorbed into MS Outlook.com (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/hotmail/home).
