    I just started using Outlook 2010 (using Windows XP on my Acer Notebook) and it worked fine for a few days but then, as I was typing a reply to an e-mail, the letters got as small as a pin head. Both the original e-mail font and my reply are so small I can barely see them. My original e-mails were working fine until a couple days later and they started doing the same thing. The letters are the size of a period. I have read other questions and answers regarding this issue so I went into Format Text, as they said to do, but I can not find a way to enlarge the text to 100%. I can change the font and size in the box in my replies and new e-mails but as soon as I do and go back to typing my e-mail the font and font size boxes go blank and the letters are extremely small. If this helps, Outlook works fine on my Dell computer. I am a computer illiterate so this may be an easy fix (I hope so) but I haven't been able to find the fix. Thank you so much for this service. It is a blessing for those of us who have no where else to turn with problems!

    Not familiar with Outlook but perhaps View/Zoom might assist , if that function is available.

    Try holding the Control key and scrolling the wheel on the mouse. This will increase or decrease the viewing scal.

    THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!! DaveA's suggestion of holding down the Control key and scrolling the wheel on the mouse worked. I can't begin to tell you how much I appreciate everyone's help. I am thrilled to be able to use my e-mail again. Thank you again. This is a wonderful web site, especially for people like me who know very little about computers.
