Outlook 2016, View, View Setting, Other Settings, Message Preview Font RRS feed

  • Question

  • Outlook 2013 has the options to change the font size of the message Preview.  When I go to View --> View Setting --> Other Setting --> The message Preview Font button is missing from the Outlook 2016 Other Setting Dialogue box.   Is there an alternate way to change the font of Message Preview, or will that be coming in a later build? I know how to change the font on the subject line, but I want to change the font on the 2 lines of the message that are visible. 

    Thanks,
    Stacy

  • Hi,

    An update: If you are using the latest Outlook 2016, this feature is already available.

    My colleague uses Outlook 2016(16.0.6366.2047), the feature is available; I have Outlook 2016(16.0.6001.1054), the Font for Message Preview is not available.

    So my suggestion is: Update Office to the latest.

  • Hi Stacy,

    I'm afraid the option to change message preview font is not possible yet in Outlook 2016. In Outlook 2013, the changing message preview font feature was added since the October 2015 update for Outlook 2013. I'm not sure if this option will be available in Outlook 2016 as there is no documentation stating this. Hope it could be added in future release.

    Thank you for your understanding and support.
