IPAD: Changing Fonts in MAIL or rich text to HTML

Hi Everyone,

I recently bought an IPAD am looking at changing the fonts size in MAIL and also the text type from rich text to html. Any ideas. Mail does not seems to have the options--- preference. Or is their any alternative.

Thanks

You can change the minimum font size Mail will use to display text in the  Settings -> Mail -> Minimum Font Size configuration, which you get to from the iPad home page, not from within the Mail app. The values range from small to giant in five steps, and is intended to help visually impaired people have an easier time reading messages. I have it set on Medium, one size up from the smallest.

Mail will render HTML messages it receives, but you can't compose HTML in a new message or in a reply, because the app doesn't give you access to the MIME headers. But I've found that pasting text copied from Web pages or other documents at least usually retains the font and text styling.

There are App Store apps, such as +Fonts + Mail", that are basically stand-alone editing programs that then mail your multi-font message from within the app, letting you choose recipients from your address book, but not giving you access to read your mail from inside the app. Changing fonts used by the Apple-supplied Mail app requires jailbreaking your iPad and running one of the many font utilities, such as FontSwap, from the Cydia Store.
