Nexus 6 font extremely small in plaintext Exchange email

Just got the Nexus 6.  Font in my work email on the phone is so small I cant read it.  Anyone know how to fix that?  (Setting the phone's font to larger does not change anything)

Well if you are talking about the "Exchange" email on your Nexus 6, it uses the Gmail app as the Mail app is obsolete on that OS. I have an Exchange account on my phone and I receive plain text emails and when I adjust the font in the settings>display it also adjusts the size of the font for those emails as well. Since your post, I have tested and adjusted the font size and it adjusts them globally. Confirm what size font you have the phone set to currently.

I have a Nexus 6 and tested mine and when I adjust the font, it also changes the font in the Mail app as well. Can you reboot your phone and verify the font setting?

You say, "in the mail app" as well.  What is that?  This question is addressing plaintext in Exchange only

My Samsung used to auto-resize ALL email to a legible level.  This phone is not doing that.  My coworker's Nexus 6 is behaving the same way and he just ignores it but I have to read all those emails in .5 font so I need to make a change.

Thanks Spartan.  I went back to Samsung.  The Nexus 6 is missing quite a lot of functionality that I need.  The text resize setting did not work on this phone.
