    It worked with code 5611 for disable More stationery (E-mail message using -> ore stationery) but I tried to use code 3766, this code cannot disable Stationery and Fonts (File -> Options -> Mail -> Stationery and Fonts

  • According to the comments of Diane (our MVP)in the link above, the Control ID 3766 doesn't work for Outlook 2016. And currently, there is no options to disable the Stationery and Fonts option (File -> Options -> Mail -> Stationery and Fonts).

    Do you want to set a default and non-changeable stationery for all users?

    After further researching, I found that the NewStationery key can also be added under “Policies” key to prevent users from changing stationery.

    We need to use this registry key to enforce stationery usage:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Common\MailSettings

    Value name: NewStationery

    Value type: REG_EXPAND_SZ

    Value: Name of the HTML file, without the .htm tag

    Please refer to this article: Prevent Users From Choosing Stationery

  • Thank you Perry,

    Can you explain for me about .html file? I don't know how to create this file

    For example, if the name of the stationery file is “Company Letterhead.htm” the value for NewStationery would be “Company Letterhead”

  • Please refer to this official article: Create stationery for email messages

    You can find the stationary file via holding Ctrl and clicking the option "Stationery and Fonts". Normally, it is located at %appdata%\microsoft\stationery.

  • Thanks you for your replying.

    Font button is hidden for both New mail messages and Replying or forwarding messages

    but I still can edit Font of Composing and reading plain text messages

    I also tested this on my side and get same result with you. Font for plain text format can always be changed. In this case, I'm afraid this could be design.

    I've searched a lot and haven't found related official articles. Currently, If you have more concerns on this feature, it is encouraged to visit the Outlook user voice forum to vote for a similar idea or post your own.

    We may set stricter policy for users to use the default font.

    Thank you for your understanding!

    Regards,

    Perry
