This is very confused. What do you mean by "your email": presumably
messages you *receive* - other people's messages, that is? Yes,
exactly so - so their authors *don't* get to say how their messages

current default as "Times". I just chose "DejaVu Serif" for the
font of this text that I have typed here.
You think you are choosing the font in which your correspondents will
