I have a laptop with 2 external monitors.  They are 4K monitors, so I configured the monitors at 200% so the user can see everything.  In outlook, when composing a new email, the font size is set to calibri 10, but it's way bigger than that.   When the email is sent, it looks normal on the receiving end.
I went into the options, advanced and mail options and changed all the different font sizes, but it does make it smaller in the compose email, but it's way smaller as well on the receiving side, so that doesn't work.

Any suggestions how to fix this?
