VBScript – Standardizing Default Fonts in Microsoft Outlook


Our marketing department wanted us to change the default fonts in Outlook for all users.  Below is how I decided to handle it since GP does not appear to work here – this is very suprising to me.
  1. Loaded our standard image
  2. Logged in and opened Outlook 2007
  3. Opened Tools – Options
  4. Selected the "Mail Format" tab
  5. Clicked on "Stationary and Fonts…"
  6. Modified the font for "Mew mail messages", "Replying or forwarding messages", "Composing and reading plain text messages"
  7. Exited out of Outlook
  8. Open the registry and extracted the following key:
    1. HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftOffice12.0CommonMailSettings
  9. I then made a VBScript that imports this registry key and repeated the process for the other version we have in production (still working on standardization)

This process works just the same for other versions of Outlook.
