  1. I would very much like to know the answer to the question in the first comment by Dorothy: I cannot set the default font size for signature to 11 points. I copy-paste my corporate-standard signature from MS Word, custom colours are OK, size 7 and 9 are OK, but size 11 auto-changes to 12. Also, it seems to be impossible to change the dafault text colour to anything but the pre-set options.

  2. Is there any way to change the font to 11 point, or is there any way to select RGB values for the font color in OWA? All I seem to have access to are the dropdown list of 10, 12, etc., and the standard selection of text colors.
