Can I enlarge the text in the e-mail that I send and receive? It's tiny and it's killing my eyes!!

    You can enlarge the text size in any file you read by hitting the Command + (plus key). Mail, Web pages, text documents, etc.
    You set your font size in outgoing mail by using the Fonts and Colors preference.

    In Mail, open an e-mail and go to the View Menu and select Customize Toolbar... You can then drag the Smaller/Bigger button to the toolbar in the e-mail window and control the size of the text.

    You can use the following trick to force Mail to always use a larger minimum font size on received messages - some HTML messages might not look exactly as intended but at least you can now read them:

    1. Quit Mail
    2. Open the Terminal and type in the following:
    defaults write com.apple.mail MinimumHTMLFontSize 13
    3. Restart Mail.app and your HTML messages are readable.
    Of course you can set the point size to whatever you like.
