As far as I know it is only possible to change the font size for the current item you are viewing with CTRL+ or CTRL- or CTRL and mouse scroll wheel, unless you switch to plain text.

I recall with earlier versions of Windows, there was an option to change the default font and size of Menu items, Title bars and text within windows. Right click on desktop gave a menu option of Personalise(?) and gave the options for Screen Saver, Background image etc etc.

I recall doing this once and had increased one of the options for Window text but found that the text within the Outlook reading panes had also increased.

I am currently on a Windows 7 machine and the Personalise menu from desktop gives various options. The Windows colour button at the bottom brings up the Window that I was referring to but the Window Text does not have an option for size, only colour.

Thanks

I have found a way to change the Font in the Navigation pane, folders etc down left hand side and the list of emails but cannot find a way to change font of email in the reading pane.

If either of the two changes I have found are of interest, let me know and I will advise further.

Thanks

This was a good work around and actually gave me what I wanted without having to resort to plain text.  I can only read one email at a time, so this fits for what I want to do. Thanks,
