Windows 7: Huge plain text font composing e-mail in Outlook 2007

Huge plain text font composing e-mail in Outlook 2007

I have been using Office 2007 since, well, 2007 or so. Suddenly, the font size I see when composing a plain text e-mail in Outlook is huge. This started around 2 weeks ago. At first I thought it was a problem with my Windows 7 Theme. But I reverted to the default theme and I still see this. I am baffled why this started happening and how to make it stop. I'd appreciate any suggestions.

No, that's not it. This is plain text, not formatted text. The message is sent and received in plain text. It just displays large during composition.

That was it! Somehow my zoom was set to 200%. Thanks for the solution.
