    As the title says can I make these a larger font? I can only find the usual
    font setting for the viewing pane. I'm just comparing mail with live mail
    and there is quite a difference. The headers in live mail are about half the

    No, you can't do this. I have a vision problem, and I can't read what
    appears to be about 8 pt type in the sbject and headers. I asked Microsoft
    if enlarging this type was a feature. They said it wasn't and that if I
    couldn't read it, it wasn't their problem.

    Glad its not just me then. Being set at even size 10 would make a huge
    difference. Hopefully they can address this on the next release.

    I have no idea what I did (maybe my eyes are playing tricks on me), but the
    headings and list of messages now seem to be in slightly larger type and
    there is more space between the messages. This morning, I looked again at
    the settings (Tools, Options, Read), and I think I changed the type size to
    "largest," but that is only supposed to affect individual messages when you
    read them. I noticed a difference in the screen, and now, I can't make it go
    back to the way that it was. So, once again, maybe I'm seeing things?? Do
    you see anything different? With my right eye, it appears that I'm looking
    through a piece of waxed paper until I can get a cornea transplant, and my
    left eye (already has a transplant) sees multiple images, so my eyes do
    occasionally play tricks on me. I am hesitant to make changes to resolution,
    DPI, or anything else that affects everything because it took me a long time
    to get the desktop and all other programs to the point that I can see them
    fairly well, and I don't want all of that to change.
