how can i force outlook 2007 to keep a zoom setting of 125% for my emails? i
like to sit back a bit from my monitor, and this would make reading so much
easier.

thanks!

nothing yet. i'm doing it the "old fashioned way", and holding down ctrl and
rolling the mouse. it's a pain in the butt, but i hate the small text. i like
to sit far back from my screen and read large text.

there is the quick access ribbon that you can customize, which i've done
too, but i have to resize after i delete a message and go to the next one.

ANYONE WITH A SUGGESTION? i guess i'm looking for a registry edit, since
i've gone through all of outlook to no avail.

i just tried the DPI setting changed the windows menus, etc., but did not
affect the email font size.

any other suggestions?

Adjusting your DPI for your monitor's resolution is akin to wrapping your entire head in a bandage because you nicked yourself shaving. I don't have the answer to this but DPI isn't even a good bandage. There's crook out there selling an add-on for just this problem but he wants $20.00 for it. Why hasn't Microsoft addressed this for Outlook 2007 users? They fixed it 2010 and 2013 users. I'm currently looking in the registry to see if it can be done there but I'm one guy looking through all those commands. If anyone has a better way, I'm listening.
