    I seem to have trouble with my Mail app. Whenever I reply to someone, I seem to mess up my preferred messaging style, and the message formatting is really annoying (times new roman). However, when I compose a new message, I get the proper formatting that I want, which is what I indicated in the preferences of Mail.

    When I choose to reply:

    When I compose a new message:

    [​IMG]

    How can I fix this? I want my preferred format on all activity, even if I'm replying to an e-mail.

    well, in the preferences, under the "fonts & colors" tab, I tried playing around with the Message Font. Still the same, though.

    I don't have a problem right now. Check system prefs again:

    even with these settings, the moment i press reply, i'm reverted to times new roman. however, when i click compose a new message, the font would be tahoma 12, which is correct.
