    Does anyone know if there will be a release, fix, or app for increasing the global font size for email, sms, etc.... anytime soon? I have read that there are some apps out there for rooted phones...but I'm not "tech" enough for that. Maybe I'm missing something....hopefully so

    I sure would love that as well.... I have low vision and would be thrilled to be able to make the default font in the default email,gmail, and messaging apps larger!

    I just got the Droid a few days ago and was searching this forum hoping to find a way to make the gmail font larger. It is very difficult for me to read.

    I access Gmail through the Dolphin browser. The zooming capabilities make not just Gmail but most web based apps viewable. I now use the browser for Facebook Twitter Gmail as well as my corporate email. Pinch to zoom is awesome! I do hope that someday there will be a way to increase the font size globally, or at least zoom in more of the apps.

    FWIW, I use K9 for email, (the newer builds have adjustable font size), and it is much better than the stock email app.

    Is there anything for non-rooted users?

    font size is actually a setting in "spare parts", as I recall. Also requires root. Perhaps you should just bite the bullet and get it over with now ... there's lots of fun to be had :)
