Windows 7: Windows Live Mail Text is much smaller than Font size shown

Windows Live Mail Text is much smaller than Font size shown

Win 7/64. Whenever I read an incoming e-mail, the font size I see is the size shown in the font size window.
However, when I try to compose, forward or reply/reply all, the font that shows up on the screen is so tiny that it barely readable. When I'm replying, even the original e-mail text is tiny. This just started happening the last couple of days.
Any idea of how to fix it??

P.S. Even though my messages go out with tiny text, when I send one to myself, I receive it with normal size text, and nobody I send to has complained that they're getting tiny text.

Did you make any changes in "the last couple of days"?

While you're composing check the view setting, >Menu bar >Tools >Text size. Make your selection, then close WLM and reopen to see if it sticks. This setting may have inadvertently changed.

If that doesn't seem to work you can change the default setting for all composing go to: http://Change font color and text size default in Windows Live Mail | windowslivemailtutorial.com then scroll down to almost the bottom of the page to the Customize the default font for all email messages you compose section. See if that helps.
