The font size inside an e-mail is too small for my old eyes.
I can change the font size for menus/titles in Settings/Display (it is now set to 10) but that has no impact inside of a message.
Any chance there is an option that I am missing. Pinch to zoom is not a workable alternative.

I have just changed the font size for the whole device (indeed in settings >> display), and setting it from 8 to 10 did increase the size of the fonts that display the emails, for emails that are in plain text.
Maybe your issue comes from the way the email was redacted.
Is this HTML email ? From which company?

Very, very few of my e-mails come in plain text. That is so old school :-)
I simply can't read the e-mails as you can't change the font size. I can't read them without reaching for my reading glasses. The font is tiny. So is the font on the lock screen. No option to change that either.
But I can read my e-mails on my other smartphone, and that's a problem.
Oh well. Could be a show stopper for me.

Totally agree - we're testing the phone which overall is great but the email body font size is a REAL problem. It's fine when I have my glasses on but otherwise I can't read a thing and the zoom keeps scrolling off the page so I keep having to go back and find and re-open the email. We have 70 sales people with the 9800 - I'm not sure if this will work for us...

Has anyone got an update on this? I was just provided with a Z10, and it seems to be not too bad apart from this issue. If there isn't going to be some sort of update and fix for this then the Z10 wil be going back.
