Windows Live Mail - Font size

Is there a way to change the fonts for Windows Live Mail in Windows XP?

I would like to increase the size of all the windows live mail panel fonts.
That includes the folders tree, the message list, etc..

No, those fonts are pretty much hard-coded.

The only way to change the size that I've found is to increase the
screen DPI, but that's a system-wide setting that fouls up many
other things. You could also play with High Contrast settings
(Control panel > Accessibility), but again this system-wide change
makes so much other stuff unusable.

One way to improve legibility is to remove the SegoeUI fonts that
the program installs. The Folder pane and other bits will then
revert to your system font, which is probably Arial. I find this
much easier to read than the spidery Segoe. To try it, go to Control
panel > Fonts and find the four SegoeUI font variants. Copy them to
a safe place so you can put them back later. Then delete them from
the Fonts folder. Restart WLMail and see how you like it.

You can change the font in the reader pane, if that is any help? I have done
so as the default is bad on my older eyes.

I absolutely dislike the ClearType fonts.
At least on my display they do no good.
A simple work around: Just delete the SEGOE UI font completely from you
system and WLM (and Office 2007 as well) will happily default to the system
fonts.
Maybe this trick helps with your problems as well.
(try replacing the default fonts with something else with the same name)
