Trying to set default font for Outlook, Word, PowerPoint and Excel for entire organization.

We're trying to set a default font that is already available for all the users Office 365 applications (Outlook, Word, PowerPoint, Excel).

Outlook - Found older instructions on changing your own to the font/theme you want, Export the mailsettings registry key, convert to XML, created GPO and copy into User Conf>Preferences>Windows Settings>Registry. I have it pushing to a test user account but Outlook is not changing to the new font. GPRESULT /R is showing that its receiving the GPO?

Powerpoint - created a new powerpoint template with only the font changed in the master slide > Saved as Blank.potx > New GPO > User Config >Preferences>Windows Settings>FIles. Have the source set to where its saved in our domain location that all computers can access. Target Path is: C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates - Action set to UPDATE so it overwrites the default blank template already in place. - Not working either.

Excel and Word i'm still trying to figure out!

Thanks John - For Outlook, we dont care how the message fonts are displaying or received, its just the default font when composing an email.

TeemoTand - Thank you, I have seen that. We want to set these setting for the entire org instead of having the user do it to their own machine.

I'd also like to ask this question, but in regards to Intune. I can find the option to set the default font for Excel, but not Word or Powerpoint. Is this just an oversight? A bug? A missing feature? It seems beyond silly that this can be done for only 1 of the 3 big apps.
