> Please remember that the "subject" is not part of the post, it is used only for threading. Those of us who read via email see the subject in very tiny font, compared with the message body.

> Outlook Express in WinXP. Message body is configurable; incoming message header info is picked up from the "Display Properties" theme. Mozilla Thunderbird has similar properties. In both the only method I found to increase incoming message header font size is to reduce screen resolution, making most everything bigger.

> Yes, large "text" size, and it is dynamically adjustable anyway. Cannot adjust header size, even though I'd like to make them bigger. Another thing I cannot do with headers is to create a (preferrably text) file with just the headers.

> I have not tried T-bird lately, but I've given up on it some time ago, becasue in real NG-s (not like this one) it kept gettin confused as to what has been downloaded already. When trying to download just the new psots it often reverts to downloading the thousands of already present older posts, too. Of course, in OE I now have many message rules to deliver new posts into their proper folders, e.g., separate folders for each JPsoft subforum, and I'd not like to redo them.

> My eyesight is declining, text size default is largest. I rarely use 1280x1024, my normal is 1024x768. That's where the header size is readable in the control panel, but not when I maximize an individual message. When respondig, the header is displayed in a larger font...

> I do NOT want my private mail to be on an unprotected public server. Just recently Borders went out of business, and their whole database was purchased by Barnes&Noble. I don't know what privacy rules the bankruptcy court imposed on the buyer, but I don't want to rely on such fickle future. Besides, it is much easier to switch email servers if all your critical data is on your own system. The diskspace used is trivial.
