I am getting the batched version of the emails so it is a little harder to
follow threads etc. That is why I explained in my post what the fix was! If
you read the post again you will see that I did put Virtual 800 600 in the
ServerLayout section which is what the first responder suggested. That
didn't seem to work or change the font/resolution at all.
If you know a good way to "follow the thread" when getting the batched
emails please let me know. Because there are so many batched emails per day
I delete them after I read them. I will however keep this one so I can
remember what the thread was called.
