How to Change Default Font for Mail app in Windows 10

The Mail and Calendar apps help you stay up to date on your email, manage your schedule and stay in touch with people you care about the most. Designed for both work and home, these apps help you communicate quickly and focus on what’s important across all your accounts. Supports Office 365, Exchange,, Gmail, Yahoo! and other popular accounts.

Starting with the Mail app version 16.0.11231.20082 and higher, you can customize how new messages will look with a new default font feature. If you create a new mail or reply to an existing mail, the text you type will be in the font face, size, color and emphasis you have selected.

Default font applies per-account and does not roam to other devices.
