very small font

Post by Dave Davison »

A friend complained this week that the font size on the emails he has received from me of late are so small he cannot read them, my font is set to size 10. I told him to simply hold down the Ctrl key and roll the mouse wheel away from him but I reckon it must be recent anomaly as he has never had cause to complain before and wonder if the fault lies with my settings or his? Any suggestion please. :thumbup: :thankyou:

Copy yourself on one of the email you send to him, and judge for yourself?

Think how stupid the average person is, then realise that half of the population are stupider than that.

10 points is quite small - why not use 12 points or even larger?

Thanks guys, points taken; Did as suggested, created email in 14 font; line length 16cm [27 cm on actual screen]. Received email only measures 20 cm on screen but increases to 27 if I hit the "Reply" tab. If this is replicated on the screen of my friend he will likewise only have to hit the "Reply" tab to remedy the issue.
But the sudden anomaly puzzles me.
