8710-ga ,

I also have MS Outlook 2002. To make the font larger in the text of an
e-mail you are composing, you can select a different font size (the
default is 10) from the font size drop-down list box in the upper
right portion of the Outlook Compose Mail toolbar.

In other words, after you have your mail open, on the same toolbar
that has the Save icon (the little brown diskette icon) on the
left,,,follow along out to the right on that same toolbar and you'll
see a drop-down box with "100%", then to the right of that the font
boxes: font type (i.e. Arial) and then font size (default = 10). Click
on this list box and select a number larger than 10, i.e. 12. Then,
the font you type in your mail message will be in 12 point font. If
you want only some of the text in your message to be larger font size,
you can use the mouse to select which portion of text you wish to
change the size of, then select a different number from the font size
drop-down box, and only your selected text will be affected by the

There is no normal way to change the font size of the subject line.
There may be (probably is) programmatic, custom ways of doing it,
(i.e. with Visual Basic or VBA custom code), but there are no standard
menu commands to change the size of the Subject line font.

Also, when you have an e-mail you are composing open, you can press
the F1 key to access the built-in Outlook help system.
