MessageFont, my second Apple Mail productivity tool on the Mac App Store has been released. MessageFont lets you set Apple Mail’s default composition font for rich text outgoing messages.
Background: The message font setting in Mail preferences affects local display only. This formatting is lost when messages are viewed in different email applications. For instance, in Outlook, your mail is displayed in Times New Roman. Apple Mail uses Helvetica. The inability to set the default font for outgoing mail messages is a source of constant frustration for many.
If Outlook for Mac, Thunderbird and other email applications can set the default composition font, why can’t Apple Mail do the same?
Solution: MessageFont makes it very easy for all of your new messages, replies and forwards to have the font you specify. If this feature is something you’ve been clamoring for Apple Mail to have, check out MessageFont. It’s available today for $4.99.
Here’s some screenshots of how your email will look like before and after using the app:
