when I reply or start a new email in Outlook , the type is so tiny that I can't read it. (see file attached). I looked at your response to another member and the suggestions to him didn't work for me.

What was the suggestion?

Looks like the Zoom on the email has changed

If you hold down the Ctrl Key while scrolling your mouse wheel forward and backward you should see the font size adjust.

Failing that
You could just close outlook
Reopen using
Start>Run>Outlook.exe /cleanviews


If you are using OUtlook 2003 or earlier
Check to see if Word is being used as the email editor
If it is turn it off

If its not, try turning it on

Honeybear23--Click the Down arrow to the right of the box next to Times New and make the desired change.  This applies to the email you are reading.
If you want the change to be the default size
