This is my e-mail program, but I find it so hard to read. It is very faint. Is there a way to darken the background or the print so I can see it better? Thank you.

What is faint? The whole program or incoming mail?

Has it always been this way? Have your rebooted the computer? Is this the only program that everything is faint in?

Yes, I have rebooted several times and it has always been this way. I tried to find something in Settings, but no luck.

What version of WLM do you have? Go to File/About.

Hi Opal, this has been a complaint for a few years. Many users find the WLM program hard to read and use. Have you thought about using Outlook mail online?
You can get it here.

Opal, you could try changing the font for your WLM incoming mail.
Along the top of WLM select File and then Options
From Options choose 'Mail'
In the window that opens choose the 'Read' tab and from there you can change the font and its size.

Click on 'Fonts' and the window as in my attachment will open. The settings I have there are alright for me but you may want to change the font size to 'Larger' and experiment with the actual font type until you get it to your liking.

Thanks to one and all who helped me with Live Mail. It looks better now that I have changed the font size.

In the same manner there is probably also an option to change the font to bold.
