Default Can I use bigger fonts when I am sending out an email?

Please Login to Remove!

I am operating on OS v4.6 and I was wondering if I could use bigger fonts when I send an email. I use a yahoo account and when I look into my send folder - I can see that the fonts (that I used through my Bold) they are very small and they just don't look nice to the other end. Any Idea?
Also when I receive an email with an attachment and then I forward that email the attachment will not be forwarded.
Can you please help me on that?
Thank you all in advance

Your fonts are set in Options|Screen/Keyboard. Don't think you can change the font for individual e-mails.

Thanks for the reply kirrinjones. When I try to change the fonts from Screen/Keyboard they are changed everywhere. What I am looking for, is your comment - to change the fonts for individual e-mails.
Thanks again

You're welcome. Maybe when they update to OS 5.0 we might get that feature.

Don't be shy - send an email to BlackBerry, on their site. They want to hear suggestions to make the BlackBerry better. Now is their time to shine (as in 'shine brighter than the iPhoney').

Or maybe even send it to Research In Motion (RIM), the makers of the BlackBerry.

Regardless of your font settings, how a recipient views an email message is determined by his/her own particular font settings - this is true regardless of platform or device.

If we had the ability to send HTML formatted email, the end user would be able to see the differences, assuming they can view the HTML email.

davidA, thanks for the reply. When I receive emails from others I see their font configuration not mine. I may receive two emails with two different font sizes. Isn't that so?
Thanks again'

If RIM wants their phone to shine brighter than the iphone, they have done everything good except they give us shity application memory. At least let us use the 1gb on board memory, better yet, let use extend it out to our micro sd cards. If that happens, then blackberry's will probably be the greatest phone in the world.

Yes, that is correct. Most major email clients offer you the option of either viewing a message in the format it was sent or viewing it in your font of choice. Font size can also be set in many instances. It is also true that a few clients offer no choice in regard to presentation - this is true of both mobile and regular email clients.

Cheers
