Dynamics 365 – How to Change the Default Email Font

I recently had a requirement to change the default font used by emails in Dynamics CRM from the rather ugly defaults to something a bit more presentable, there are a few ways to go about this which I’ll mention, however, the method I’m going to cover in detail uses only OOTB customizations rather than a hacky JS function.

The Solution

It turns out that the default font that Dynamics uses these days isn’t actually defined within the program itself, it’s defined by your default browser fonts. As such changing the default fonts will change the default of the emails in CRM for yourself at least.
