    How do I change the font size of my email messages?

    Your browser determines the default appearance of fonts (including size, style, and color) in the Yahoo interface. You can also change the font size of the text in your email messages when you view them using Yahoo

    Which font size would you like to change?

    To change the size of text in your email messages:

    1. Click the "Mail Options" link in the upper-right corner of the page.
    2. Click the "General Preferences" link.
    3. Next to "Font Size," select your preferred font size. "Smaller" will make the font of messages one size smaller than your browser's default setting; "larger" will make the font one size larger.
    4. Once you have chosen a new font size, click the "Save" button to activate your new settings.
    5. Yahoo will confirm the changes by displaying, "Your changes have been recorded."

    Please note that the above steps will affect only the text of your email messages, and only those messages displayed in plain text (the fonts of HTML messages will not be affected).

    To change the font size of all of the text in the Yahoo interface, you must change the default font size of your browser.

    Internet Explorer users:

    1. In the View menu, choose "Text Size."
    2. From the menu that appears, select your desired font size.
    3. Your selection will take effect immediately.

    Netscape users:

    1. From the Edit menu, choose "Preferences." This will open up another window.
    2. Click on the "+" symbol to the left of "Appearance." Note: Netscape 6.0 users will see a little triangular arrow.
    3. Select "Fonts."
    4. Netscape will display your current font settings. Make all desired changes and click "OK."
    5. Your selection will take effect immediately.

    To change the font size of other browsers, please refer to your browser's help files.
