I have a new Samsung Galaxy A14 5G as my S7 Edge shot craps on New Years Day. I didn't have this issue with the S7

When I open a message that is anything other than just text in Gmail, screen is filled with a portion of the message, i.e, it doesn't shrink to fit. This is best illustrated so please see the attached screen shots. The one on the left from Outlook, the one on the right is from Gmail. This is the same message, opened normally in each app. What's the cause of this and is there a fix? Does it have something to do with the settings in the phone app AND my PC desktop browser settings?

Hello and welcome to the forum... I believe that is the way the app interacts normally on the phone app ..

Thanks! Based on what I'm still experiencing and the lack of other replies, I'm inclined to agree! I just configured the Samsung email app to catch my gmail mail and it works great.

Late to the party but will add that I have never seen Gmail do that on any phone I have ever had. Been using Gmail for years and have not noticed this behavior. Maybe it was a setting within Gmail?
