Hey guys!

I have my Outlook Express VIEW for font size set to LARGEST but some emails have tiny font size and won't increase in size even with this setting. Is there anything I can do? Maybe get inside the guts of the program somehow and change something? I'm not a programmer but I have ventured inside programs to change stuff around ... the infamous REGEDIT!!! But I am VERY careful.

Thanks in advance for any assistance!!

Some email may be sent like a webpage using html with a set font size. What steps are you using to change the font?

Hey Dave! How u doing?

As to the font size, all I've done is try to change the font within the program ... VIEW LARGEST ... didn't make it very much bigger. Maybe I could select FORWARD and then once another email opens I can tweak the font that way? Geesh, so many hoops, so little energy!

Not too bad. Had a rough couple weeks, but things have slowed down now.

I don't have outlook express but the two methods I remember are View>Text Size and I believe there is also Tools>Options>Fonts. Remember, if the email is html you may not be able to change it - just depends on if they set a specific font size or used em (em is a variable size and can be adjusted) in the code.
