Send them an email from some UNIX system using an ancient mail program
such as ELM or PINE and have them see that this is going to happen to
any email sent from any system. If you don't have access to an old ELM
or PINE - Yahoo, Hotmail or Google would probably also work if in a
somewhat less dramatic fashion.
<CFMAIL...>, or any mail tool, has nothing to say about what happens to
the message once it has arrived on the client system. If they start
changing it, it is going to get changed. And if the tools the client
uses (i.e. Outlook and MS Word) does that change automatically against
the users desires, <CFMAIL...>, or any mail tool, is not going to be
able to help them.
Of course I suspect somewhere buried in MS Word is a setting or option
on what font to have imported plain text displayed in.
Thanks for that.
It is what I figured all along. We searched around in Word to see if there was some kind of place where we could set the default imported text font and size, but didn't find anything.
Hopefully they'll just get used to the idea that mixing Word with email can't always have the results they want.
In Microsoft Word, the default font is set in the Normal.Dot template. To find out where it is located, click File | New, select "New from Template', right click on the "Blank Document" template and look at the properties. Open this template AS A TEMPLATE file, change the font, and save. My guess is that should solve your problem.
BobDean is correct. I believe you can also set it using the Format > Font from the menu bar. Select the font you want and click "Default" in the lower left corner.
