    Preview pane HTML text size too small.

    How do I increase the text size of HTML messages in the preview pane?
    For that matter, can I increase the size of everything in general in
    the preview pane for HTML messages? Thanks.

    View | Text Size | Largest. However, if someone sends you a message using
    8pt fonts, it's going to be small no matter what you do,

    The only other thing you could try is a lower screen resolution if you can
    get away with it.

    Sorry about that, Mike. I answered too quickly and totally missed the part about your view was in the "preview" pane.

    In Internet Options, Accessibility dialog, check Ignore font sizes...

    Re: Preview pane HTML text size too small.

    I have been experiencing the same problem since I changed my puter to Windows
    7 (64), Desktop, wit WLM, from XP.
    I did not have this problem with Outlook Express in XP.
    There is no "Ignore font sizes" under accessibility in Internet Option for
    Windows 7.
    Robert, could you expalinn further? What do you mean by "Ignore font sizes?"
    Thank you,
    Dr. Musou

    An admin may have disabled it. In my W7, using IE it would be
    Alt-T,O,Alt-e,z (same as in all previous IE.)


    FYI

    Re: Preview pane HTML text size too small.

    Robert,
    Thank you for your response.
    I did what you described below. Nevertheless, the text size is still small
    in the HTML email.
    I just want to enlarge the text size of the HTML messages which are received
    by Windows Live Mail.

    I asked the same question @ Microsoft Answer, and received a message that
    WLM does not have the function. Only way is to receive the meesage in "Plain
    Text."
    Since I do need to receive pictures besides text, "Plain Text" does not work
    for me.

    I have also read some suggestion that you can forward the message to
    yourself, and in the process, you can change the font size. This "High Tech
    Solution" might work, if I receive only 1 message a day.

    The font size is obviously small also when I print them.
    Again, I did not have this problem with Outlook Express in XP.

    Do you have any information for this problem of WLM?

    Thank you again,
    Dr. Musou

    "Opening" the message doesn't help either.
    It just presents equally too-small-to-read text in a bigger window.
    (I have *got* to remind my old schools that some of their alums have..."old
    eyes"!)

    The workaround I use is to "reply" to the message, which brings it up in a
    reply window but in plain text (since I have my settings to send in text
    only). Of course, when I close/escape the message I have to be sure to check
    'no' to saving or sending it. But at least I *can* read it that way.
