New Apple Mail 4.3 Feature: Change Mailbox Title Text

   Posted June 17, 2010 by David Kirk in Apple Mac

Apple Mail 4.3 update contained mostly bug fixes. One new, mildly amusing feature was added. With this version of Mail, the user can now change the font face and size in the mailbox title text. If you like customization and personalization of your OS X system, this new feature will give you 43 seconds of intense pleasure.

One of the things that drives me crazy about Microsoft Outlook is all the font tweaks that users eventually try. Well, now that feature is available for OS X too. My daughter will be looking for a “Hello Kitty” font face any minute now.

All kidding aside, this is actually very helpful for people with issues such as poor vision.

1. Open Apple Mail
2. Click Mail Menu
3. Select Preferences
4. Select the Fonts & Colors tab
5. Select your Mailbox font

In fact, while you are there, change all those fonts… might as well go crazy, huh? 🙂
