Setting Fonts via Policy - BES 4.1
Hello All-

Is there a way to set the default fonts that will be displayed on the receiving end via BES policy??

What I'd like to do is ensure that any emails sent from our user's handhelds are displayed in a specific font/size when they are viewed from the receiving mail client.

Thanks in advance!!!

The font setting on the BlackBerry is only used for viewing text on the handheld.
It does not have any impact on the font used for sending messages, and how they are viewed on the receiving end.
All messages sent from the BlackBerry are send using plain text. It's up to the receiving end to determine how that is displayed in the mail client.

thanks, penguin.

are there any 3rd party tools that add this functionality?? seems like a longshot, but I thought I'd ask.

There are third-party packages which will allow the BlackBerry to read/view HTML messages on the device, but to my knowledge there are none that would allow you to compose an HTML-formatted email message.

All times are GMT -5. The time now is 08:56 PM.
