Tip #8: Zoom on Emails

As you select a message to read, you may find that the font that looked right to the sender looks way too small for you.  Similar to web browsers, the Intellect mail preview window allows you to zoom in and make it bigger, bigger, bigger (or smaller for that matter).

Hold down the CTRL key with one hand and use the scroll wheel on your mouse with the other. Wheel up to make everything in the preview window bigger and wheel down to make it smaller again.

The Zoom level you pick will also stay in effect for other messages while you have the program open, but will reset back to the normal 100% the next time you launch Intellect.

Bonus tip:  Hey, its two for one!  Use CTRL-M (or the big square button below the black X in the preview pane) to Maximize the preview window, allowing it to cover the list of messages and give you more room to read.  When maximized, two new buttons are also added to the toolbar to allow you to still move up and down the list of messages. When you are finished, you can hit the same button or keystroke again to return to the normal state of things.
