Default Font for All Outgoing Mail on Clients



A Forum reader recently asked:

"Our company would like to enforce a default font for all outgoing mail. Does anybody know of a way to enforce a font on GroupWise clients?"

For creating text messages:

DWORD: DoNotCreateHTMLMessages

Value: 1

String: PlainTextComposeFontName:

Value: name of installed font (i.e. Times New Roman)

DWORD: PlainTextComposeFontSize

Value: switch to decimal, and use numeric (13, in hex would be 0x0000000d)

You can force these settings down via ZENworks or a login script. You can't lock the settings to prevent users from changing them, but if you force them down every time a user logs in then at least you'll keep setting everything back to the company-defined "standard" settings.
