    Yes it is; only phones that can actually do it so far are Blackberry (OS 10+), iPhone iOS 7+ (with html tricks) or iOS 8 natively and Windows Phone (all versions). The only third party email apps on Android that can do it so far are AquaMail, (both the free version and the paid one) and BlueMail. Actually, the native email app for Android on some brands (like HTC One M8) and on some versions of CM11 do send outgoing email font that appears just fine in Outlook, both Mac and PC versions.
    Just tried with the new Gmail 5 version and still the font comes as Times New Roman.

    I'll keep trying and report back.

    Changing the web settings in Word did it! Now if only I could change the corporate policy for all of our machines to behave the same way. I don't need it to be so obvious that I'm not at my desk!

    Being able to choose a font in Gmail Exchange/AOSP E-mail would be the ideal solution though.

    Thanks, is it so that JRy1's instructions work only for the computer where the e-mail is being read? If that is the case, then it is of little help. It basically only disguises the problem in my own computer but all the recipients of the e-mail reading it with their Outlook see the e-mail in Times.

    Considering that Outlook is probably the most used e-mail software in any corporate setting, Samsung should enable at least the basic fonts that Outlook can interpret and give the users the possibility to choose between them. This should not be an impossible feat.

    Galaxy S5: I go to settings-display-font and change font to Samsung Sans which changes on the phone but not on outgoing gmail. Is this even possible?

    Yes, Hi, I was looking for a solution for the same problem, it was driving me crazy. Its incredible how unprofessional times new roman can make you look. What you have to do is to go on outlook on your computer than: file > options > mail > stantionery and fonts. Than you can configure all options to the same font and collor. If nothing is selected there, which is the standard, the mail will come out with standard font, which is terrible times new roman. Hope that helps.

    This is not a solution to the original issue. Others will still see Times New Roman. It should be some type of package file that installs as a system font in the phone. This way it applies to all apps.
