Installed from: Compiled sources
KMail ignores custom font settings made in "settings" -> "appearance" -> "fonts". This is caused by the new message list settings.
Reproduce: I have choosen bold fonts in KMail settings for new and unread messages, but all new and unread messages appear in normal style:
Thomas McGuire has already confirmed this bug:
"I'm not sure how to best fix this, though, as the font can also be specified in the setting of the theme. It is not clear if the font of the configure dialog should override all fonts of the theme (might not make sense for the fancy theme, where the sender/receiver has a different font, for example).
One option is to remove the message list stuff from the font settings altogether, and add a theme option for making the text bold instead."
I commented afterwards:
"If the settings would be integrated into the new theming, there should be an option to set a "new or unread" style for at least the subject."

This bug affect also to me! I cannot change the fonts settings in Kmail.

Unfortunately this bug turns out to be a showstopper for kmail users who are used to new or unread messages in bold. It may force people to stick to KDE 3.1.4 in their productive environment.
Sorry forthe typo - must read 4.1.4.
So it looks like there's no workaround for this at all? I don't have theming enabled, and it still won't let me change the font sizes at all for the message list. I seem to have wrangled the folder list to respect a smaller font, but can't easily reproduce.
Aside - I've just been forcibly pushed into KDE4.2, and am finding lots of these kinds of surprises (one reason I reverted to 3.5.x about 6 months ago after experimenting with 4.x). I suspect we'll see quite a few new followers of these bugs over the next few weeks, as Debian has just dropped KDE 4.2 into their unstable branch.
I'm pleased to use kde 4.2.2 but this bug prevent me to manage a great amount of mails: how to underline important ones if you can only rely on the beautifull little icons in front of each item in the list?
Thank you for the work!

Now working in openSUSE, thanks for the fix, much appreciated!
Version 4.3.00 (KDE 4.3.0) "release 155"
Repository: @System (KDE4 Factory)
Vendor: openSUSE Build Service
On my machine (Kubuntu, KMail 1.12.4, KDE 4.3.4) this isn't completely fixed: just now I tried changing the font size in the message list and found that the change had no effect. It turns out that it only takes effect after restarting KMail, but it took me a little while to figure that out.
Running KMail 5.1.3, I also experienced this bug.
The only workaround I found is to manually edit the font settings in kmailrc:
UnreadMessageFont=Monospace,10,-1,5,75,0,0,0,0,0 <- this is bold
UnreadMessageFont=Monospace,10,-1,5,50,0,0,0,0,0 <- this is not
the value 75 defines the bold font.
Please, fix this.
