    Hi Microsoft.

    One of the key limitations of Windows Live Mail is you have to select from a
    VERY FEW amount of "pre-set" font sizes (only six) and there is no way to
    type in a custom font pt size like you can do in Office Outlook 2007 and
    other E-mail programs. There needs to be more "pre-set" font sizes
    available such as (9,11,13,16 etc), just as Office Outlook 2007 has many
    "pre-set" values available. Here is an example picture that shows all the
    "pre-set" font sizes available in Office Outlook 2007:

    Also, there needs to be the ability for users to manually type in a custom
    font size in addition to the "pre-set" font sizes. Here is an example
    picture that demonstrates how the drop-down font size box could be modified
    to allow users to manually type in a custom font size:

    Also, since currently, Windows Live Mail ONLY supports "pre-set" values of
    font sizes, when you set a font size in Tools>Options>Compose, Windows Live
    Mail will automatically round down whatever value you set in the font dialog
    box to the lowest available font that matches its set of "pre-set" fonts.
    For, example, if you go to Tools>Options>Compose and set your default font
    size at 21 pt, Windows Live Mail will automatically write E-mail messages at
    18 pt and only 18 pt, because that is the lowest, closest "pre-set" value,
    and there is no way to type E-mail messages at 21 pt. For another example,
    if you go to Tools>Options>Compose and set your default font size at 11 pt,
    the exact same font size used in Outlook 2007 with the beautiful Calibri
    font, when you write new E-mail messages, it will write new E-mail messages
    at only 10 pt, because that's the lowest, closest "pre-set" value, and there
    is no way you can write E-mail messages like Outlook 2007 does with the
    Calibri at the size of 11 pt. If you try to increase the font, the closest
    you can get is 12 pt, which is the closest "pre-set" font size in Windows
    Live Mail. Here is an example picture that demonstrates what I'm talking
    about: http://home.earthlink.net/~justin03248/font-size2.jpg

    There NEEDS to be more "pre-set" font sizes when writing E-mail messages,
    and there needs to be the ability for users to manually type in a custom
    font size in addition to the "pre-set" font sizes like Outlook 2007 and
    other E-mail programs can do.

    Microsoft, what do you think?

    What do all you users think about this feature request?
