Need larger font on AOL Mail

My mother was having trouble reading her AOL mail on her computer so I bought her a 22 inch monitor. The font seems to be the same. How can I increase the font since I do not see a dropdown menu for font on this screen.

Hi,

if you are using firefox, do the following:
Go to menu>Tools>Content and change the default font to 24 (depends on your comfort)

In Internet Explorer
Got to tools><internet options>General, you will find a tab appearance..you can change the font size here also for a bigger appearance.

Regards

When I reply to an e-mail on OUtlook 2010, the font size is very small - and I cannot read the original or what I am typing. Any ideas on how to restore the normal size


Having trouble seeing that small default font of Microsoft Outlook emails? There are three ways of making Outlook email text bigger.
The first includes increasing the text size of the outgoing email messages.
The second includes increasing the text size of messages that are replied to or forwarded.
The last includes making all the text of incoming emails larger as well.

Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.
Find the Personal Stationary tab, then find and click the Font button located under the New Mail Messages heading.
On the Font tab that appears, there will be a variety of options including changing the type of font, style, size and color.


Find the drop-down menu that is under the Size heading and select a bigger number.
Click OK and the new setting will take place the next time a message is composed.

Replies or Forwarded Mail
Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.

Find the Personal Stationary tab, then click the Font button that is located under the Replying or Forwarding Messages heading.
Find the drop-down menu that is under the Size heading and select a bigger number.
Click OK and the new settings will take place the next time a message is replied to or forwarded.

Incoming Email Messages
Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
Click the Mail Formats tab and then click Stationary and Fonts.

Look for the Display Font heading on the Personal Stationary tab and increase the size the size of the font by selecting a larger number.
This will increase the text size for all plain text incoming email.
However, it will not increase the text size of incoming HTML emails.

Set the option to read all incoming email as plain text if it is necessary to increase the text size of all incoming emails.
To do this, go to Tools, then click on Options, then look for the button that says Email Options and click Read all Standard Mail as Plain Text.

Create the menu tab on your homepage right click in the top toolbar you should see a number of toolbar options select the menu tab which will add File Edit View Favorites Tools and Help

Isn't there a way to delete all inbox mail on AOL? It seems silly that you have to delete one message at a time.


if you are using the AOL software/program, open your mailbox, select the very first e-mail from the list, then press and hold down the SHIFT key on the keyboard and click the very last e-mail. This highlights all e-mail in between. You can then press the DEL/DELETE key on your keyboard

if you are using the webmail (available on AOL.COM), you will see a box at the very top column of the mail folders, selecting it will select all e-mails, then press DELETE key or click the DELETE button

Setting the default font size composing mail in aol browser


Hi - no problem. I can help you out. When signed on to AOL, look at your top tool bar. Click on Settings. This will open the Help window. After the Help window opens, look under the "T" section and click on Text and Font. Clicking on this will open a smaller box labeled Font and Text settings. After the box is open you can change the size and look of your font. Just use the little arrows next to the font and size. The sample will change to show you how it will look in your emails. You can also change the color, bold or not, italics or not, etc. if you wish. It's all there. Once the sample looks the way your dad wants his text in his emails to look, just click on the Save button at the bottom of the box and you'll be all done. If this solves the problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to assist you further. Thanks.

Related to outlook


I am not sure I completely follow your problem but it sounds like you are just trying to set the font?

In Outlook 2003 Inbox, go to Tools > Options
Click the Mail Format tab
Click "Fonts..." under the "Stationery & Fonts" section of that page.
Set the fonts and click OK.

You can set your fonts there but please note that if you have stationery set, it may over-ride your font setting.
