If you are selecting a font that is listed in the Theme Fonts on your e-mail application, your mail recipients will be easily able to read, reply, and use the font too. However, if you are using a special font, make sure that your mail recipient(s) also have that font installed in their PCs to be able to read your mails in that font. In case it isn’t installed, the application will automatically use a substitute for the font.
