How do I change the font size for incoming & outgoing email messgaes?


Re: email font

For outgoing emails, if you are still in the old email format, from the Inbox page go to Preferences>>>>Email>>>>>Composing.  There you will see the option to change the font.  It's a pretty limited selection.  If you are in the new format, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the Inbox page, then on Settings.  Under Mail Settings you will see the option to change the default font.  The selection is much larger than the old format.  However, some people, including myself, have been unable to get a change to work.  It is being worked on.


For incoming emails, that is controlled by the sender.  If you just want to enlarge the text-----------------


On a Windows machine, hold down the Cntrl key, then tap the - key to reduce it, the + key to increase it, or the 0 (zero) key to return it to the default.
