Font on main Email inbox screen

Font on main Email inbox screen

Is there a way to change the font on the email page?  It is a small times roman font.

 

when I compose a new letter, it defaults to a larger arial font which is what I want so no issues here.

 

Thank you

You can increase the font size by holding down the Ctrl kept along with the plus key on your keyboard.

 Thank you for your answer. The font size is not the issue. The real issue is the font itself. I just changed from a PO P email account to an IMAP account. Now the font is all messed up.

Are you talking about reading your emails in the Comcast webmail UI?  Or are you talking about composing an email or what?  Are you on a desktop computer using an email client like Outlook or some other?

I have a desktop computer using Microsoft outlook 2013. I am talking about the main outlook screen when outlook opens. It show all the folders in the left pane/column and the list of all emails on the right. This is where the font is hard to read and a bad font.

I don't have Outlook, but I do use Mac Mail.  In the preferences for it I can change the default font to whatever I want.  Presumably Outlook has a similar capability.  Did you try just resetting it to the font you want?

Yes I did and it only changes the new email composition font. Not the opening screen font.

Well maybe someone more familiar with Windows than me can jump in here.  But in the meantime maybe this will be of use to you--------------------
