If you have configured several email accounts in your Outlook and would like to use different fonts in outgoing emails as per different email accounts used for sending, you can utilize the approach introduced in this article.
Many users hope that Outlook can auto select and use different fonts in outgoing emails based on different email accounts which they use for sending. However, by default, Outlook doesn’t have such a feature. Fortunately, you still can realize this with the help of VBA code. Now, we will reveal this method in detail.
Auto Use Different Fonts for Different Accounts when Sending Email
- In the first place, start your Outlook application.
- Then, in the subsequent Outlook main window, you ought to press “Alt + F11” keys.
- Next, you’ll enter a new window – “Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications”.
- In this window, you’d be required to find and open the “ThisOutlookSession” project.
- Subsequently, copy and paste the following VBA code into this project.
'Occurs when you click "Send" button Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean) Dim objMail As MailItem Dim objMailDocument As Word.Document If TypeOf Item Is MailItem Then Set objMail = Item Set objMailDocument = objMail.GetInspector.WordEditor 'Use different fonts based on different send using account 'Change the accounts and fonts as per your needs Select Case objMail.SendUsingAccount Case "email@example.com" With objMailDocument.Range.Font .Name = "Times New Roman" .Size = 13 .ColorIndex = wdBlue End With Case "firstname.lastname@example.org" With objMailDocument.Range.Font .Name = "Cambria" .Size = 10 .ColorIndex = wdBlack End With Case "email@example.com" With objMailDocument.Range.Font .Name = "Segoe Script" .Size = 8 .ColorIndex = wdDarkYellow End With End Select objMail.Save End If End Sub
- After that, you are better off signing this code.
- First, click on the “Tools” button in toolbar.
- Then choose “Digital Signature” option from the drop down list.
- Later you can follow the onscreen instructions to complete this task.
- Then, you can exit the current window and proceed to change your Outlook macro settings to permit the signed VBA projects.
- From now on, every time when you send an email, Outlook will auto change the fonts in the outgoing emails as per the email account for sending.

I like this bit of VBA… it is perfect for my problem of working with multiple client formats / signatures.
Question: what happens if the email is sent from an account that is not included in the VBA… will it revert to the default settings made in Outlook?
If this scenario causes an issue / crash, then is it possible to amend the VBA so that it has Case = or something equivalent and then set the default for this Case???
