    I receive a lot of emails from one person who writes in 8pt font, making it hard to read. Is there a way to create a rule so this person's emails automatically change to a 10 pt font?

    I know I can open and zoom, but I read most everything from the viewer pain and I am trying to cut down a step.
    I'm using Mail V. 5.3

    Thanks for any help!

    Email display is controlled on the receiving end, not the sending end. If it is not worth the trouble for you to make your received messages more readable, then don't do it.

    There is a hidden Mail preference that lets you set the minimum size on HTML-formatted e-mails. Open the Terminal, paste in the following and press return:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.mail MinimumHTMLFontSize 12
    Of course, you can change the 12 to any other font size you want.
