Font size of OE

by WILKAN / February 14, 2013 6:48 AM PST

On some of my messages I receive, the font size is so small that I can hardly read it.
Is there some way I can make it larger or is that only possible with the mail I send?

That did it! I switched to plain text and now every message comes up large enough to read.
Thank you.
Is there anything else that will change by switching?

About all that will change is embedded pictures?

I don't think there's a way to change it in OE.

So what I do: ctrl-A, ctrl-C to copy it to the clipboard, than in MS Word ctrl-V to get it, then enlarge it from 100% to 150% or 200% to be able to read it. Since it's only on some messages it's not a big issue.

You are right, it is not a big issue, just a pain in the ***
Thanks for the reply.
