Launch the inbox and open the email you want to read. Click "Other Actions" and select "Zoom" from the pop-up menu. Choose the desired zoom level you want to increase the font size.

3

Alternatively, select "View" and select "Text Size." Select the text size you want to use.

Select "View" and select "Current View" if you want to change the font or font size of the message list. Click "Other Settings" and click "Row Font" under "Columns, Headers and Rows." Click the font, style and size you want to use. Click "OK" in the "Font, Other Settings, and Customize View: Messages" dialog box.
