If you wish to change the body of an email message press you right hand mouse button and highlight the message. Then right click on the highlighted text and click on 'Copy'. Open Notepad and select 'Edit' then 'Paste' and your text should appear. You are then able to set it to a size to suit you by using the 'Format' and 'Font' options. To save the text file click on 'Save as' and give it a name. Hope this answers your question.

You didn't say which MW program you are using, the v6 Classic version or the current MW 2011 version. In v6 all you can do to get bigger text is what was already suggested. If you have the 2011 program you can use the text zoom function under the display options button to make the text larger.

Both programs offer a choice between a limited/safe HTML view and a plain text source view, v6 with a toggle on the preview pane and 2011 by switching tabs there. The plain text view can be difficult to read if the sender did not include a plain text version of the message with the HTML copy when they sent it.
I am not a Firetrust employee just a MW user.
