How can I change the default font on my emails to 10pt in Lotus Notes r5?

Emails always start off in 9pt and I always have to F2 the text up a font size. I can't see a way of changing the initial font size in any settings though.

"Font and font size settings are determined in the mail form in your mail file template. This is nothing that you can set anywhere.

Changes must be done with Notes Designer on the mail file template your organization uses - and then the changes are replicated to your mail file.

Contact your Notes Designer / admin - they would have to change this."

"This is a workaround, but it may be helpful if you have NO design access to your mail file, and your IT department won't help.

Notes has a ""Permanent Pen"" feature. On Notes 7 it's under Text > Permanent Pen when composing an email, but I'm pretty sure Notes R5 has it too.

Set a permanent style to the font/color/size of your choice, then use the shortcut key to enable it when composing an email (On Notes 7 I press Alt T R U). You could use also AutoHotKey or something similar to further automate this."
