When reading HTML mails, I miss a zoom button, since many clients use fonts that are too small to read comfortably on the screen. Either promote KHTMLs zoom buttons, or provide your own, please ;)

My eyesight is failing and changes from hour to hour.
I would like kmail to use the ctrl++/ctrl+- keystrokes to zoom in and out in the same manner as Konqueror. I am not sure whether this should apply to the whole KMail window or only the message(active) pane.
I think that this might subsume longstanding "Bug 59576: zoom buttons are missing in kmail" and "Bug 50983: HTML mail does not honor minimum font sizes".

From bug #90622:
CTRL-Scrollwheel does increase and decrease text size in the message pane, but for HTML mail and non-HTML. However, this is useless for those who don't have a mouse (or those with no scrolwheel). Toolbar "Zoom" buttons that provide the same functionality will solve the problem as they can be mapped to keyboard shortcuts. This should be rather easy to implement.

Changing font size "on the fly" is useful when you temporary need to read some asian or complex fonts.

Or for laptop user s who often find themselves using the machine under varying ambient conditions.
