Currently when we print.. if we dont have the right font we substitute a font. 

we use the following to substitute:
serif       goes to Times-Roman
sans serif  goes to Helvetica
monospace   goes to Courier

anything else.. you have to install the right AFM files to support those for 
postscript.

I am assuming that the font being used in mail is a Serif font.. so Times Roman 
will be substituted.  If you want a San Serif font then the mail will have to be 
defaulted to a San Serif font.. which then will print Helvetica.

Hi

I set Message Display to "fixed width font" or "variable width font"

So i get courier style for the 1st and as I have set "propotional" to
"helvetica" i get a sans serif for the 2nd.

the body is fine (most of the time, there is another japanese bug that means
that is always in serif for the body AS WELL)

It is just the email headers that come out in a Serif font.

Does that explain well enough?

Can I reopen?
