font default size

How do I increase the default font size of email replies.

Re: font default size

If you are still in the old email format, from the Inbox page go to Preferences>>>>>Email>>>>>Compose.   There you will see the options for changing the fonts.  If you are in the new format, on the Inbox page click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the page, then on Settings.  Under Mail Settings scroll about half way down the page and you will see it there.

 

 These instructions obtain if you are composing a new email.  I think it should work for replies too, but I've not tried it myself.  After you make the change, you will probably need to sign out of your account and back in again to make the changes "take".

I had previously performed that task, it worked for new emails, but not replies.

Re: font default size

I think then what is happening is that the software will use your preferred font for a new message you are composing, but it doesn't recognize Reply or Forward as a new message.  The best way to get around that would be to enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook or Thunderbird.  That might do what you are looking for.
