    I am using a Lenovo T61 with Vista and Outlook.
    Suddenly yesterday while composing an email message in Outlook, the type in the text box turned into tiny unreadable characters. Now all messages are in that same tiny unreadable font. I have closed Outlook and booted the system. I have checked the font in the tool bar and in the Preferences page and it is fine. The text in subject fields appears fine. When I send the document, it appears properly in the read pane for my computer and for those I send it to. I can ONLY read what I am typing in the text box by changing hte default font to 72 which still appears pretty small on screen but appears huge when sent that way.

    It appears to be a toggle switch or setting that got changed but I can't figure out what or where. BTW typing this text into the text box for this web based forum is fine... so it is only in Outlook itself. And it does not affect documents in Word or in search bars on Google or other web mail related locations.

    Help would be most appreciated!

    Never mind gurus... I found another message with the same problem and resolved it the same way - through returning the view pane to 100% - Mine was at 10% - who knows why!!!!
    Sorry to have troubled all of you! But I WILL post another problem shortly!
    THANKS!
