I have a user with the same problem. Can't find anything on the Web about
this one. Can't find anything on Usenet. Can't find anything here. My user
is going insane here, and so am I. How about a response, MS?

Sorry if my frustration did not translate in your head, Brian. I'm QUITE
aware that this is Usenet and I'm very well versed on what it is and how it
works and who visits regularly.

Right now I'm looking for any help at all on this topic from anyone who
would care to offer a helpful, constructive response.

Over the past several months I've done extensive Web searches, MS KB
searches, Google Groups searches, and plain ol' plain text no-frills Usenet
searches. This group, by the way, is the only place that I've found to even
mention that anyone else besides my sole, frustrated user is having this
issue. This is not a font settings issue. This is not a user error. This
is not an Outlook Express issue. This is a bona-fide Outlook or Exchange bug
(and I'm leaning ever so slightly toward Exchange or AD since I have had this
user try Outlook 2000 and 2003 and even went as far as swapping out her PC).

That is why, dear Brian, I resurrected this thread. If you have a solution
for me, I'm all ears (or eyes, if you will).

I concur. I also have users with this problem. While there is an awful lot of
discussion regarding it I am yet to see anyone with a solution. Even if the
answer is "there is no solution, it's just anoher little software quirk so
deal with it".

I'm having a font problem too. It started when I upgraded my AVG software ad
couple of weeks ago. After the upgrade when updating I would get a message
saying to 'close Outlook so the update could complete'. I had never gotten
this message before, only got it a couple of times and am no longer getting
it. But this is when the font problem started. I am using MS Word as the
editor and when I reply to emails the font is an 8 even though it says it's a
14. I have to set the font at 26 at least to see the message to reply and
then hopefully remember to put it back to the 14 or the recepient gets the
huge font.

This is extremely annoying and I don't know what to do. I uninstalled AVG
but that did not fix it. Now I see others have been having this problem for
months so I guess we're all just out of luck.

I am running WXP, SP 2, IE and am using AVG as mentioned for antivirus
program and the Kerio firewall, both the free versions. I've tried to
register for the AVG forums but can't, just keep getting a blank page.

Any ideas when this might be addressed by the powers that be?

Disable scanning of your messages with AVG.
