I have a requirement where in we need to change the font for the contents in the mail being generated from SAP.

I am using the FM SO_DOCUMENT_SEND_API1 to send my mail.And the contents are just appened to an internal table as text elements.

Can we change the font in the email that is being sent from SAP to Arial 10points?

E-mails generated with that function module are created in plain text format. The font that would appear when reading the e-mail would be dependt on the user's setting for the e-mail application (e.g. Outlook).

To my knowledge, the font cannot be affected during it's creation.

Hope this sheds some light on your issue.

If you wish to have different font, then create the email content using a smartform, generate a spool & create PDF or HTML from the same.
