Change Font when sending mail from OneNote

    Is there any way to change the default font in the introduction section when
    sending a copy of a OneNote via email?

    What I mean is if you are on a OneNote page and try to send email via File
    -> Email (Ctrl+Shift+E), OneNote changes to page that enables you to send an
    email. In that page, there is an Introduction section. I always put
    something into the intro section and it comes up as Times New Roman. This
    looks very ugly as the rest of the email is in Calibri.

    Anybody?

    That is a "compose window" of your standard email client (Outlook ?).

    Because at that step you are now using your mail client you have to use
    the abilities of that client like formatting text ...

    I tried that, but it really isn't the Outlook window. It is a OneNote
    window. Try it. create a OneNote page with Calbri font and then click on
    Ctrl+Shift+E. Write something in the intro and send it to yourself. The
    intro comes in as Times New Roman.

    No, Sir !

    When I use Ctrl+Shift+E then a compose window of my standard mail client
    Thunderbird comes up, as it should be.
    Onenote isn't able to send mail by itself.
    The problem you have could be connected to the intention of Onenote to
    send in HTML format and your mail client not allowing that.

    Whatever your mail client is ;-)

    If you want, make a screenshot of the generated window, upload it to a
    free site like ImageHost and post a link here.

    I figured it out. I have Outlook 2007 and OneNote 2007 installed. When you
    create an email in OneNote, you get a page that looks like OneNote. When you
    send, it sends it through Outlook as a web page or XML. Outlook uses Word as
    the email editor. In Word, the default for HTML is Times New Roman.

    I changed the default font in Word and now my Intro looks exactly like the
    text in my OneNote. :)

    Aha !

    BTW: you can advise Outlook NOT to use Word as mail editor, if you want.
