    The font in the message (body of email) is extremely small after lollipop update. It occurs in all email apps GMail, Outlook, etc.

    The subject line and topic is fine. Just the body of the text.

    In the Gmail app double tap on the text and it should get a bit bigger.

    Thanks Javier

    I have tried many options. I changed font, deleted app and reinstalled, etc. The issue is with all mail apps outlook, gmail, comcast. I tried to paste a picture of the issue to the site but I do not think it worked. The font is extremely small just in the body.

    Why is the font size in the body of my email extremely small.-error.jpg

    I'm not sure about the rest of apps. With Gmail go to settings - general settings - and make sure "auto fit messages" is checked, so you can double tap and zoom. As far as I know there's no way to change the font size just for those apps.

    I am experiencing this as well. As someone who has just come from a Windows phone to Android (because there are hardly any decent apps on Windows phone!) I find this is the single most frustrating issue with the email app. Usability goes out the door when you have to keep zooming and scrolling to read an email. I NEVER had to do that on a Iphone or Windows phone so I am astounded from a usability perspective that Google believes this is a satisfactory solution for what could be a great business phone of it not for this one issue.

    Still suffering from this problem on Andriod Outlook APP, the font size of the email body is just too small and cannot be adjusted by the phone's system font size setting.

    There are many Outlook apps in the Play store. Try the free ones until you find one that works, and that has adequate font size.
