Web-Safe Fonts for PoliteMail

PoliteMail users may want the option to use their corporate branded font when sending PoliteMail. In order for the message to display correctly, both the sender and the recipient must have the fonts installed locally for the email page to render/display correctly. If your have a corporate font and you know it’s been installed on all your recipients' computers, it’s OK to use it, recognizing they might not have it on their mobile or work from home mailbox if using a browser-based email client not on their office computer.

Common universal web-safe fonts available on most Microsoft, Apple and Android devices include:

  • Arial
  • Times New Roman
  • Verdana
  • Courier
  • Tahoma
  • Georgia
  • Trebuchet
  • Geneva

If you have a particular font that is essential to show, for example in a heading, you could always try inserting it as an image.

There are some more modern import and font-face HTML/CSS options, but these unfortunately are not yet compatible with the Outlook editor. At PoliteMail, we expect to have some solutions for this in a future release, particularly within Office365.
