I wanted to mention this here in case anyone else doesn't like the default setting in Interlink using a display with the DPI set to anything above 100%. If you think everything looks too small you need to change the setting layout.css.devPixelsPerPx from the default of 1.0 to -1.0 (that's negative/minus 1.0). This makes it follow the system DPI setting (aka automatic).

This setting controls the font size of UI elements like the menus, Folder Pane, and list of messages headers. However other settings *also* control the font size of message bodies. Here are some/the other settings which influence the font size displayed in the Message Pane and in the message window/tab, in order of priority/precedence.

1. Whatever font size is specified in HTML tags in messages formatted with HTML. This does not apply to messages formatted as plain text. This is not a setting, but exists separately in each message and overrides the settings.

2. Edit>Preferences>Display>Formatting>Fonts & Colors>Advanced>Fonts & Encodings>Minimum font size.
3. Edit>Preferences>Display>Formatting>Fonts & Colors>Advanced>Fonts & Encodings>Proportional Size and Monospace Size.
4. Edit>Preferences>Display>Formatting>Fonts & Colors>Size. This is linked with number 3.

5. View>Zoom>In / Ctrl++ or >Out / Ctrl+-. This is a temporary setting, applies to both HTML and text, and persists only as long as that message window/tab remains open.
