After installing Kubuntu 16.04 LTS.
I attempted to change the font size for my KMail Message List and found that when I selected custom font and then selected KMail > Settings > Appearance > ticked Use custom fonts > "Message List - Unread Messages" the font sizes were grayed out and not selectable. Also the same for "Message List - Important Messages", "Message List - Action Item Messages". All the "Quoted Text" settings.
Steps to Reproduce:
I should of been able to change the size of the font.
I have the same problem with KDE 5.2.0:
Kmail Settings/Configure Kmail/Appearance/Fonts/Message List
(using Custom Fonts) will not change font size
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Kmail, select Settings/Configure Kmail/Appearance/Fonts/Message List
(using Custom Fonts)
2. Try to change font size (various fonts)
3. Hit Apply, OK
4. Message List font size has not changed.
N.B. No problem changing Message Body font size.

I downgraded to kubutu 15.10 which has KDE 5.4.2 & Kmail version 4:15.08.2-0ubuntu1. It works fine.
This happens for me as well, running KMail 5.1.3
Problem still there in KMail 5.3.0.
Same here with KMail 5.3.0 on OpenSuse Leap 42.2.
Same here with KMail 5.4.0 on openSUSE Tumbleweed.

use custom font if checked
IMHO the problem is in themedelegate.cpp
always uses system font.
Attached patch seems to fix it.

Which version of Kmail will that fix be in, please?

Use custom font in KMail Messagelist if checked,
currently the systemfont is always used.

Anyone know which version of Kmail this will be applied to, please?
KMail 5.4.2, as part of KDE Applications 16.12.2 released today.
Many thanks, Christoph!
I can confirm that Kmail 5.4.3 - newly arrived in the repository for Linux Mageia-6 today - has removed this problem.
This is a problem for me again, Kmail 5.2.3, newly installed Kubuntu 17.04
