how do I change the font of the body of the e-mail messages I receive?

I have successfully increased the font size of the messages I send the name and date and re: message on those I receive BUT the body of the received messages are still not the font size I need.  How do I increase the font size of the body of the recieved messages?

You can change the receive email font at Options > Display > Screen Display > Font.

 

This will NOT affect incoming HTML emails where they font is designated by the email HTML codes.

 

You cannot change the outgoing message font. All outgoing BlackBerry email messages are text only, no HTML is allowed, therefore the actual sent message will not be affected.. only you will see the font chosen in the compose screen. The recipient of the email will not see a difference in fonts.

thank you, however that does not change the size of the font on the body of the emails I receive from others - it only changes the font of my sent messages.  Any other suggestions?

Like I said, if the email you receive from others is an HTML email, that font is controlled by their HTML encoding.

I have the same problem on the Q 10,but on my Bold 9900 ,if I change the font size to say 10, then all incoming emails .even HTML will view in font size 10. Why cannot the Q 10 do the same. It is difficult for me to read the emails in font size 8 . Ronnie
