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

Paul

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).
