    Question Outlook text size

    Since I reinstalled everything after my rebuild I must have changed a setting in my outlook 03. Incoming emails with plain text the fonts are really small and I can't find a setting to change it. Emails such as posts from this forum that I subscribe to for notification. I have changed every setting i can find to Arial 12 point which is about 5 or 6 different settings to no avail. Other emails such as from Trademe that come with graphics in them come through normal size.

    I have googled this to no avail over the last 2 weeks so if anyone knows how to fix this it would be much appreciated. It's only on my pc not tthe other 2 and even looking at thier settings I can't figure this one out.

    Default Re: Outlook text size

    Look under: Options, Mail Format, Fonts.

    What's the "When composing and viewing plain text" option set as?

    Here's a screenshot of where to find it.

    Weird, can't think of what other setting would affect only plain text emails.

    I think it must be some sort of html setting but I don't know what. I found a reference to that in an IE answer on the net also a thing that said make sure word is zoomed at 100% which mine is. Weird

    Have a look at This article, may be of some help.

    Another way is to double click the mail to open in a separate window, The click View/Text Size - select to suit

    Brilliant thanls Wainui it was tools-options-email options read all mail in plain text.
