I use Outlook Express for all incoming and outgoing emails. I've just installed Windows XP and am happy with it. Recently, a frequent correspondent has told me that all my messages are arriving in a tiny font size (6.5 point or something ridiculous). Now, I send them in Garamond 12 point and they appear as such when I write them and when I view my incoming messages on the screen.
I'm mystified. Is there anything I can do about this? Is the problem at my end or at my correspondent's end?
Are all my messages arriving thus? No-one else has commented so far.
Thanks in advance for advice.
Regards,
Jenny

For a trial, send me a message. Feb 1, 2008

I wanted to suggest you e-mail me but somehow my e-mail address gets screwed up in my posting.

Another attempt to give you my address for an experiment Feb 1, 2008

No luck. This file keeps screwing up my address. Good luck, anyway.
