Provide an option to allow font size to be changed or customized and same in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Provide an option to allow font size to be changed in Microsoft Outlook 2016 including the font and colors for the folder pane. Also make it possible to customize the fonts for Mail, People, Calendar on module basis. Also, Allow user to make a permanent (default setting) change to the font and size template for mail created in Outlook 2016 under Windows 10, not just on a mail-by-mail basis.
Also, set a default font that is always applied to my tasks. They change depending upon the email moved to tasks.
Also, Please give us a way to make the fonts and lines darker on the email form so that they can be easier to see and use. They are just to light and hard to read.

With the 'coming soon' lay-out in Outlook 2016 the font size of the email list is now larger than that of folders in the left pane or even the titles (all/unread) on the top of the list. That is strange. I value more emails on a single pane over a larger font for the key email metadata.
At the same time the line dividing the email subjects seems to have become thicker, together with what seems to be increased spacing. I really dislike thick horizontal lines. The lines could/should be there to improve readability but should only be a hair thin so that it helps your eyes follow the line without becoming too obtrusive.
Due to the increases spacing a user needs more time to scan over the subjects and it distracts at the same time.
A way to customize this would be nice.
With one of the recent (past 6-9 months) updates, Outlook changed the sizing of my view. With the new update, we are no longer able to change all font sizing easily or not even all fonts. I have to go in and manually modify each font for each section in Outlook, and it still is not like it was before. I suggest having an option to set the view to text sizes for all items & folders & accounts within Outlook not just one at a time formatting.
Many users, me too, use the add reminder functionality to take brief notes in certain important message, but as you can note the font is quite small and it is confused with the other part of the reminder (start by …. you replied …) it should be more evident at a glance
Do you guys realize how many baby boomers are using your products, and who are asking for a way to make the fonts larger, overall???? Do you get it? Do you care?

Reinstate the Colourful theme and allow setting of font size and colour.
The grey drop down font is hard toread and too small.
Or allow display setting 125% increase to apply to office too.
Please, add font Ridley Grotesk to the fonts list
I am blind. i want to read and compose in one large font, but the actual message that gets sent out to be normal size, default calibri
When creating a group in outlook, we are linking the "group usage guidelines" to specific instructions we would like our users to view and be aware of before creating the group. We would like to customise the wording of this to ensure our users know the importance of viewing the guidelines/standards before creating the group.
please, please increase font size
allow more flexibility with folder, being able to highlight or bold specific folders by right clicking would be great. the new email is surprisingly rigid you would think there would be more customization, I live in my email and it very important that I be able to navigate without having to work so hard to find things.

I need to make the font size of my folders in the very left panel bigger, it is hard for me to see as I have bad vision.
I have had Outlook 2016 for about 2 weeks now and nothing but headaches! The color scheme is pretty much damaging to our eyes, and the inability to change the font size (folders) renders this feature basically unusable. Did you miss the memo that a lot of us are getting OLDER??? I've never put a lot of emphasis on customization before, but that was before I NEEDED it for functionality! Please give us an email interface that won't cause daily eyestrain and headaches... maybe go back to the old one???

I would love to be able to change the font size for folders, headers, everything in Outlook. Font is large on some items and tiny on others
Can we get an option to increase the size of the fonts in email headers. When I open an email, the date is tiny and the sender's email address is huge.
Outlook 2016 - Please provide an option to change the font size in the folder pane. I have to have a larger font on my computer. Please update this sooner than later!
Within (View -> Change view -> Manage Views -> Compact (or any view) -> Modify -> Other Settings -> Column Headings and Rows & Message Preview)
These font settings will only apply to the folder contents preview screen. They are not applied to any of the other fonts throughout the UI (i.e. Navigation Pane, Ribbon, Reading Pane, etc.). For people that are trying to use larger monitors to reduce eye strain, it would be nice if Outlook either automatically increased size of font to match the scaling difference from a small screen (i.e. laptop) to a larger monitor. Or, to enable users to adjust the fonts as they are able to do within folders.
As someone with challenged vision, I find Outlook 2016 more difficult to see. I have had to turn on reading pane in order to zoom my emails so I can read them. But I really don't like using reading pane. I have found a way to increase the font size in my emails list, which is helpful, but other than that, everything in Outlook looks too small (icons, calendar list, mailbox list, etc). I can find no way to enlarge these things a little bit so that I can look at them without straining my eyes. Please provide an easy way to customize Outlook appearance for people who are visually challenged.
The ability to change the font size in mail folders exists, but the far left menu's fonts can't be readily changed within the app. I'm ok with the top menu - it's the menu on the left that I'd like to see have size options.
The resolution on my monitor is high and sharp, but the overall font is just a bit small. I can increase the font or lower the resolution - but then things are just not as sharp when I do that.
