The only tools in hotmail are spell check, dictionary, and thesauraus. Did you mean DEcrease type face? Out of curiosity (I have the same programs) I ran a check on how many lines I could type in hotmail and stopped at about 40. Maybe there is a different program for Spain. There are other free emails such as Yahoo and Gmail. Gmail allows you to change type and colors.

There is always the option of attaching a word processing document to your E-mail, with the highlights in the body of the E-mail itself. Having a E-mail client that allows POP access is the pleonist's dream, since usually your application will allow for much longer messages (G-mail, for example is free and allows POP access).

I get zilch. .Still. I will persist " problems are only opportunities to excel " Thank you again. Francie

I wonder if the limitation applies with the new version of Hotmail at Windows Live MailBeta? You might transfer your Hotmail account there and see:
