The Windows 10 Mail app is probably the most useful preinstalled app on the operating system, next to the calculator and the calendar. It’s easy to set up, stable, and rarely encounters any crippling bugs or performance issues. It’s also one of Microsoft’s most regularly updated apps, with new features and support added on a regular basis.

Starting from Mail app version 16.0.11231.20082, all users will be able to create their own custom default font configurations. Including any of the following aspects: Size, Font, Bold, Italic, Underline, and of course Colour. Although this may not seem like a groundbreaking new feature, it’s exceptionally handy and a great time saver if you have a special email format to adhere to when sending out mail.
