Would you be okay if I connected to your computer and viewed the issue to fix it?
Does it happen randomly? Always to the same people?
The reason that is happening is likely because of how their replies are setup within their email system. Which year of Outlook do you have?
On the Tools menu, click Options, and then click the Mail Format tab.
In the Compose in this message format list, select PLAIN TEXT
Try sending an email to her again and have her reply back. Let me know if the font stays the same when replying back to her
That should fix the issue for you. Let me try and explain the issue in more detail: Each user can set their format differently within their email program or browser. If you send an email to someone that is using a different format than you, it can "mess up" the font on the reply back because of the difference in formats. The steps that I gave you, set the format as a universal format so that it will not cause issues with anyone elses format setup regardless of what it is.
Unfortunately, I cannot tell you why it has changed. If you have been emailing the same user over the last 5 years and it recently changed, they could have changed their format on your computer or started using a different program.
Pictures are allowed as attachments via Plain Text. All attachments will work as normal.
That is correct -- You would lose those settings. Unfortunately, if you use the universal settings then it will lose those options.
The reason that your "coding" is 10x more or different is because of the different formats. I understand this is frustrating but I can only provide you with the correct information. If the other person has the same format that you are using then there won't be an issue. If they are using a different format then it can cause that type of "glitch" or "coding issue"
Open the email with the large font size
Hold down the CTRL key and move the mouse wheel towards you to zoom out. After adjusting the zoom, on the email so that the font is correct, try replying back to that person and see if it fixes the issue.
Press CTRL and use the mouse wheel the opposite way to zoom back in
