I am working out of Outlook 2003 on an Exchange Server 2007 system. One of my co workers is having problems reading some e-mails because of the font size of the reading pane. He wants to have the option of changing the font size of reading pane from like 8 to 12 to make it easier to read. I have tried holding down Ctrl with mouse's scroll wheel and right clicking the tiny grey border around the Reading Pane. None of them works, Ctrl with mouse’s scroll wheel able to change font size in IE but not in Outlook, and even I can selected large font size when clicking the tiny grey border, it didn’t actual changed the font size. Please help.

But basically, if you hold down the control button then scroll the mouse scroll it'll increase/decrease.

Hi Rogerard, thank you fo ryour help, I tried those settings in the link, but none of them work. The control button and the scroll mouse didn't work for Outlook.

That's weird..  I tested the ctrl+scroll on the Outlook 2003 reading pane just prior to posting that solution.  Make sure you click on the reading pane first, maybe?

:)  or better yet, just place the mouse anywhere over the reading pane to get that feature to work.

Then you may need to have your tech support to look at your PC.  I've tested the feature on a Outlook 2003 installation via Citrix, a local 2010 installation at work and a 2007 installation at home and all three are able to zoom in/out (resize text) using this method.  Ensure the mouse is hovered over the reading pane, then while holding down the control key, simultaneously scroll the mouse wheel.

Rogerard, Thank you so much for your help, I can change some email's but not all emails, about 50/50. I'm not sure why.
