Can anyone answer this question? I'm getting headaches due to eye strain from

using my new computer. I can change the text size by making everything plain

text, but that messes up both incoming & outgoing mail.

Changing the inbox pane font & arranged by pane font was no problem. Why not

the reading pane?

What you see in the Reading Pane is controlled by several factors. One is the

format of the message. If it's in Plain Tex, then Tools>Options>Mail

Format>Fonts>When composing and reading plain text.. If it's in HTML, then

the fonts chosen by your sender and the zoom factor you've set in the message

window will have an impact. There is no one solution and you haven't given

enough information about your particular case to be more specific.

How I deal with incoming message with tiny font it to click on reply before

reading and my ZOOM is set with a font I can read easily. Then when I reply

I can type in the larger font I see but it doesn't send back to the sending

in that larger font.

Hope this helps.

the easiest way to change the font size on incoming messages is to first open

the message, in the actions pane which is the pane containing the large x,

click on other actions, then clicl zoom at the bottom of this drop down list,

here either change button from 100% to 200% or use the arrows in the percent

window to make adjustments to your personal preference. (very easy 3 steps)

I have to use a PC with windows at work and I just spent an hour trying to

find a feature that should be easy to use, only to find out it doesnt even

exist. This is just one more frustration which continues to reinforce my

loyalty to my Macs. In Mail you can switch the size of the text in the

reading pane very easily through a very intuitive menu.

Bob, that is an amazing response. i think that you should submit this

information to Microsoft for compensation.
