    I compose a message in Mail, copy and paste some text in it, and before I send it, everything looks fine (ie the font seems consistent). However, when the recipient receives the message on Outlook, the email show different fonts on different parts of the message (very ugly).

    Has anyone else ran into this issue? It looks fine in the Mac Mail program when in reality the fonts are noticeably different when viewing it on Outlook or a web mail program. Is there any way to see font types that are being used for all parts of an email before sending it? It's really annoying.

    It's a real pain in the butt, and I've haven't seen a solution in 10 years! :(

    You could try the Edit -> Paste and match style option.

    Is your recipient using a Windows PC? If so, perhaps your preferred font is not a Windows system font and may substitute yours.
