Just registering my agreement on this. It would be great to be able to make the text in individual HTML messages bigger.

It is perfectly reasonable and common in mail software to compose HTML mail without an explicit font size, as MailMate does when generating HTML, so when an HTML message does specify a font size it is a sign that the font size is important and should be honored.

Unfortunately, messages with overspecified HTML also tend to have inadequate plain text alternative parts or none at all, so while "Prefs->Viewer->Message View->Prefer plain text" will usually make it possible to adjust font size. as a practical matter that is likely to be inadequate. Hopefully at some point Benny will replicate what Safari does to zoom text to have mercy on old guys like me...
