For the signature, see
http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/94853-windows-mail-signatures.html

For WM font, you have to specify whether you are talking about
1. Font for reading incoming text messages
2. Font for composing text messages
3. Font for composing HTML messages
4. Font used for folder names and message list.

I am talking about writing an email. It's always on Arial and I wish it was
on something else. Thanks

That was really helpful but I'm still having a hard time figuring out how to
change the Signiture. It seemed too difficult with the previous directions.
Is that my only option?

I know of two ways, but neither is without drawbacks since
it results in system-wide changes.

1. Change the default DPI (dots per inch): Right-click on the desktop,
Personalize, Adjust font size (DPI), Custom DPI; if you want to go larger,
I recommend not exceeding 110 DPI.

2. Change the icon font: Right-click on the desktop, Personalize,
Windows Color and Appearance, "Open classic appearance properties...",
Advanced; under Item, select Icon, choose font and size.
