When reading emails the lines are too big for the screen, and its a huge hassle to read an email shifting right/left every line. I tried changing the font size, which did not help with reading and made writing emails hard in "small font". Is there something that I can do?
Here is a link to some of my other issues as a new Sprint and Android user.

Thats how it has been with Android since forever. Why never fixed it I cant say. You can double tap the screen and (sometimes) text will size to fit, but that does not help the html images.

The problem is in landscape, I understand that in portrait you cannot see the whole thing, but with the other OS (IOS) this is not a problem. So even when turning you cannot see the whole email. This may be the deal killer for Android.

Other OS's handle the issue in portrait better as well such as....WebOS (sigh). It has been a complaint on android forums for a long time but nothing seems to get done. Probably too busy deciding that we don't need menu buttons....

People are too much, this is a feature selection not an issue. You select portrait our land scape give me a break. They're called smart phones for a reason.;).:confused:

lol, exactly. Gmail doesn't display my emails in portrait either. You know what I do? Scroll left and right, or flip it to landscape.

Yeah it's definitely a pain but there are some solutions out there. The native Android email client leaves alot to be desired like that...so download some other clients like Touchdown for MS exchange or the Hotmail app. These clients do display emails a lot better but I've found for each email client it has strengths and weakness so pick what suits you best.
