That will depend upon font substitution in the receiver’s Email.

Some fonts have italics designed by the font designer so that the italic version of a given font has a specific shape intended by the designer of the original font. Other fonts have no built-in italic, at which point the operating system puts the font’s shape through an algorithm that slants the font. Depending on the font size, this may also make the font appear to be bold. Font snobs take issue with whether or not an italic font is a “true” italic, which is not really just a slanted version of the font, but has additional attributes not part of any algorithm, since it requires human artistic aesthetics to decide the details of the font shape.

Similarly, font designers can design a bold version of the font, or leave that blank and the OS will apply an algorithm to the font to make the font fatter, which is not really quite identical to the font made bold by the font designer.

And, of course, the bold italic version of the font can be specified by the font designer, or algorithms step in to do whatever the designer didn’t do.

SuStel’s email client and OS and the default font made the italic appear to be bold as well. Mine did not.
