Provide an option to allow font size to be changed or customized and same in Microsoft Outlook 2016
Provide an option to allow font size to be changed in Microsoft Outlook 2016 including the font and colors for the folder pane. Also make it possible to customize the fonts for Mail, People, Calendar on module basis. Also, Allow user to make a permanent (default setting) change to the font and size template for mail created in Outlook 2016 under Windows 10, not just on a mail-by-mail basis.
Also, set a default font that is always applied to my tasks. They change depending upon the email moved to tasks.
Also, Please give us a way to make the fonts and lines darker on the email form so that they can be easier to see and use. They are just to light and hard to read.
I've just switched to 365, so new to this and not sure if already available. I know you can change the font sizes for messages that displayed in your in and sent box lists (found that setting), but can you change the font size for the folders list of people I have proxy access to on the left, they are way too big and instead of all been visible on one screen, I now have to scroll up and down to find people if I want to access their accounts. Is there a way to make this list of names smaller, and fit back on just the one page?

The fonts and spacing on the Folder pane are too large. Please provide a "tighter spacing" option for the Folder pane as you have done for the message Pane, or else allow formatting options so a more compact Folder pane can be made.
I found the folder pane in Outlook 2010 perfectly usable and visible and is much more compact than in Outlook 2019.
Alternatively, make the folder pane variable size depending on the number of folders / sub-folders. If there are only a few a large font is OK but if many go automatically more compact so all folders still visible (down to a minimum size option.
I would like to be able to easily change the size of the font used to display the list of emails in my Inbox. I tried asking "help" how to change the font size and I was led to a series of options for changing my account that I wasn't interested in, but I was unable to find the option to change the font size used to display the list of emails in my Inbox.

Please provide the option to change the font size of the folders within the Outlook folder pane. The small font is difficult to read.

INCREASE SIZE FONT EMAIL READING PANEL
Patricia Smith commented
It would be helpful to be able to increase th size of the font of Contacts. When I click on "To" to insert email addresses, a list pops up to select the potential recipients. The font is very small. To an elderly person, it is very hard to read. It would be helpful to be able to increase the size of the font in that list. Right now it can't be done (or at least I haven't been able to find a setting to do it).

The fonts used in Outlook 2016 are extremely small. I can only change the condensed view fonts. But all the message previews, toolbar fonts, folders fonts, and basically every single text used in any and every menu/window is EXTREMELY SMALL. I've used this for a total of 1 hour now and my eyes are tired and hurt. I can't imagine what this is like for those who have worse off vision than me. PLEASE DON'T DAMAGE MY EYES. Make a settings option easily available to increase the fonts & scaling everywhere. I've increased the scaling on my computer's display settings but that has no effect on Outlook. I CAN NOT READ MY WORK EMAILS!!!!

Office 365 Outlook can only adjust font for ONE folder at a time, and cannot adjust font on any menu ribbon or folder pane. Even that is NOT a default, as the adjusted font does NOT apply to older messages. There would probably be a big increase in users if older people could see what's going on more easily.
Please please PLEASE make it possible to enlarge fontsize in the contacts. Currently, the font is way too small, and this can't be enlarged.
Please make an attempt to fix the issue with not being able to increase the font size in the folder pane with Outlook 2016,

can change font in mail, highlight, italicize, color all or part
it is sometimes important to highlight a part of an email, either by adding a color, an underline etc ...
pouvoir changer de police en cours de mail, souligner, mettre en italique, en couleur tout ou une partie
il est quelques fois important de pouvoir mettre en valeur une partie d'un mail, soit par l'ajout d'une couleur, d'un soulignement etc...
I cannot see font 11. I need to change the default size to at least 12
Please allow me to set my own default font size. Size 11 is too small. thankyou.
The big images that represent symbols make everything cluttered. The old way was better. Making everything look like the new style of Apps is not efficient. Its more difficult to find things.
The daily tasklist panel now has small fonts and with the coming soon option, categories in this pane are missing. Please have a look at that too.

With the 'coming soon' lay-out in Outlook 2016 the font size of the email list is now larger than that of folders in the left pane or even the titles (all/unread) on the top of the list. That is strange. I value more emails on a single pane over a larger font for the key email metadata.
At the same time the line dividing the email subjects seems to have become thicker, together with what seems to be increased spacing. I really dislike thick horizontal lines. The lines could/should be there to improve readability but should only be a hair thin so that it helps your eyes follow the line without becoming too obtrusive.
Due to the increases spacing a user needs more time to scan over the subjects and it distracts at the same time.
A way to customize this would be nice.
With one of the recent (past 6-9 months) updates, Outlook changed the sizing of my view. With the new update, we are no longer able to change all font sizing easily or not even all fonts. I have to go in and manually modify each font for each section in Outlook, and it still is not like it was before. I suggest having an option to set the view to text sizes for all items & folders & accounts within Outlook not just one at a time formatting.
