Another solution
Authored by: neilkins on Jan 28, '03 03:04:55AM

As another solution, instead of opening the message, just select it in your mailbox message list and then print. This will print using the font size specified in the Mail preferences. Note that this only works if the message viewer pane below your message list is also closed.

This seems to be the designed behaviour for TextEdit too, when it's in "Wrap to Window" mode. There's an entry about this in the help file for TextEdit, titled "Text Prints Too Small in TextEdit", but I can't find anything in the Mail help.

Both Mail and TextEdit are designed to reflect on the printed version the same wordwrapping shown on the screen, so if you make your windows wider the printed text size must be reduced to fit the same amount of text on one line.
