Mailbird will auto detect the correct zoom settings based on your PC. However, if you'd like to change the size of the text or the zoom of content in your emails based on your preference, here's what to do:

1) Go to the menu in the top left of the Mailbird window.

2) Select "Settings"

3) Then select "Appearance" tab.

4) Use the slider from left to right to adjust the zoom size. You can see the text in your messages increase or decrease when sliding the zoom bar from left to right. 

You can also change the size of the text or the zoom of your apps. Do the same ways, use the slider from left to right to adjust the zoom size.

    You were right, I was wrong, I apologize....it appeared to me that the menu was salient to the messages themselves rather than the inbox but if I was right,

    I looks like I will have to abandon Mailbird for the same reason that I have abandoned many other apps: fonts are impossibly small on screen. I can zoom an email message contents with Ctrl-+ and I can set zoom levels for messages and apps from Settings. However, the message list is too small to read and I see no way to change the font size for it. This is real shame as Mailbird looks like the perfect app to handle a Gmail account.

    I agree Najib.

    I like Mailbird a lot but the fonts are to small and light for me. The message lists and my folder lists are just too small for me to read. Bummer, really!

    Let me know if you find anythign more suitable

    Agree with Najib and Barbara, message list is too small. Mailbird needs to do something about it, otherwise this app won't work for me.
