Make font size larger

I would like to make the font size on my emails larger, I can't even read them. I just got windows 7 yesterday, so I am afraid I will screw something up. Thanks.

Hi PattiChati and welcome to Windows 7 Forums

What email client are you using (the program you use to access your emails)?

Patti, until you find a permanent fix, an easy work-around, is to hold down the CTRL key, and use your mouse wheel to change the font size on individual emails.
