Default windows xp internet explorer

I am having a little problem seeing and would like to make the fonts in IE a little larger. When I go to view then text size it will change the text until I x out of Internet Explorer. The next time I open it the text is small again. Is there any way I can fix it where the text stays big all the time? I tried going to accessibility
then clicking ignore fonts specified on webpages, but that made some of the web pages look real funny.
Any help would be appreciated

This might be a little odd, but do you by chance use Eudora as your mail client?

If you do, you need to go into the options, and under the view tab, uncheck the "Use Microsoft Viewer".

Double check and make sure you have at least service pack 1. I have seen this problem on PC's without SP1. Post back.
I am not here to debate with you self proclaimed \"experts\" or technology \"weekend warriors\" your opinion doesn\'t mean much and holds no value.

I am here to give help to those who politely ask for it. I can appreciate your do it yourself mentality and your quest for knowledge.

Microsoft outlook, and incredimail are my e-mail clients. I have windows sp2 at this time. Mabey this is something to do with sp2.
I don't recall when I started having this problem. I used to set it and forget it. It always stayed the same.
