    Greetings contrain !

    On Outlook's View menu, hit Arrange By, and then Custom will allow you to select the fonts to be used for that view.

    You can also look at Options, Mail Format, Fonts and select a larger size, though that will also impact the actual font size used in any HTML you might send.

    And finally as you view a message, if your mouse has a wheel, ctrl+rolling the wheel will increase or decrease the text size for most messages.

    Best wishes, war1
