Windows Live Mail 2011 - text size in received message pane

Eyes not as good as they once were. Does anyone know how to increase the default text size in the received message pane? Any help appreciated.

Thanks for your prompt response:
The procedure you recommended appears to apply to the HEADER INFORMATION IN THE READ PANE after you open a message. My original request may have not been clear but I am interested in:
Increasing the font size in the upper pane that displayes the incoming message list ( I display FROM, SUBJECT, DATE ) before a message is selected for reading.

Sorry, I misread your question. I'm fairly sure WLM does not provide a feature to increase font size in preview pane. But if you go to control panel click on display you can change display size for the computer. There is also a magnifier tool which you can play about with to see if that suits your needs, anyway have a look and see. It can always be changed back if it does not suit you. Sorry but thats all I can suggest to you.
Hope it is of help

Thanks so much for checking this out for me. Thought I might have been missing something. Looks like there is not fa clean fix except changing screen resolution.

Thanks again,
