Font size and font type in Apple Mail

I am using an iMac and apple mail.  The font size is extremely small...12.
I went into mail preferences and selected fronts and it made it possible
to change to size 18.
However, it does not retain that as a default?
How can I set the default size and type in Apple Mail?
thanks,

Hi Richard!
Here are the steps to changing the default font of your email messages in Apple mail:

1. Click Mail
2. Select Preferences
3. Select Fonts & Colors
4. Click 'Select' next to Message font
5. Click the gear icon
6. Select a font family, typeface style and size.

And that's it!  That should change your default message font in Apple Mail.
Hope this was helpful!
Thanks,
