Font and font size
If you do not specify a font, the program decides at the email recipient which font is used for display. This font can be very different from the text of the email.
For this reason, you should always specify a font, preferably the one used for the text of the emails. If you use the onOffice sample templates, the font Arial is selected.
Many programs, e.g. browsers, often use Arial, Helvetica, Verdana or similar fonts. Therefore, it is enough to choose a font that is as similar as possible, it does not have to be the exact one.
As in Office, select the text and then choose the appropriate font from the menu.
