Text size in Windows Live Mail 2011

Is it possible to adjust the font size when reading a received email? I've tried making changes in Options > Mail > Read > Fonts > Font size, but nothing changes regardless of whether I pick smallest or largest or anything in between. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi popowich

Many thanks for that. Yes, I've tried that, and it works fine if I'm reading in plain text, but not in HTML. I think there used to be a zoom control in earlier versions but I can't find it in WLM 2011.
