Been searching and figured I'd ask here as a final ditch effort. The Mail app on my iPhone 7 plus on ios10 has tiny tiny fonts for HTML emails. So far I've tried:

Adjusting font size in accessibility.
Restarting phone.
Closing app in background and restarting.

And every combination of the above three therein. Does anyone know of any solution besides the ones I've tried, or is it simply a bug that needs to be fixed? I hope its soon if so, because it's ridiculously annoying and I'm floored, absolutely FLOORED, this issue didn't come up in the beta.

I refuse to upgrade to iOS 10, but, I abandoned the mail app long ago.

I strictly use the online web based access for a number of reasons (no clutter on my phone being the big one, and the odd behavior of the iOS mail app which inexplicably eats up space requiring you to remove all accounts and re-add to free it up - and even then it's not perfect)..but I digress.

This may depend on your online view. My work outlook online portal is optimized for smartphones and looks/functions better than any mail app I've used. I don't like getting push notifications so I just login and check email periodically when I'm out of the office. Your needs may differ, just my 2 cents.

Have you tried changing some threading options in Mail settings to see if that might have any effect?

For no affect at all... Running iOS 10.1 iPhone 6. Some email has tiiiiny fonts in some parts of the email, in ios9 they worked perfectly and made me proud as in Android the mails were not resized properly, now I feel desperate, mail is the most used app by me, not messages!!!
