How to add Fonts in Mailbird

Right now, Mailbird uses fonts that already available in your local. You can find all the fonts that you have on your local in here: C:\Windows\Fonts. If you can't find or need to add another font, here's some suggestion.

Free for personal use (Some of the fonts 100% free):





Not Free (You need to pay some price):



Note: Please close your Mailbird or you need to restart your Mailbird to take effect.

1. Download the font. If you want to use it for commercial, f you didn't want to pay, make sure it's 100% free.


2. Extract the zip file that you download.


3. Copy and place the font files (.ttf, .otf or .fon) into the Fonts folder, usually C:\Windows\Fonts or C:\WINNT\Fonts (can be reached as well by the Start Menu > Control Panel > Appearance and Personalization > Fonts).



4. Open your Mailbird. Go to settings > compose. Click the drop-down to find the font that you just add (If you want to use it as a default). If you don't want to change the default, you can change it later when you compose, reply or forward email.



5. Here's an example how it looks when you compose the email.

    Custom fonts do not make much sense from my point of view, since the recipient has to have the same font installed to display the mail.

    It's probably a better idea to stick to the small set of fonts that every modern PC / Mac has installed.

    Font embedding and/or web fonts might offer alternative solutions in the future.
