Very poor font choice
Very poor font choice.
1. Does not support latin extended. Those characters are shown with a substitute font
2. Difficult to read - the thin font
3. The new messages are shown with thin characters and read ones with bold characters. I find this strange
4. No control over fonts in themes and background.
You may have noticed that we have made some subtle improvements to font sizes, thickness and contrast overall.
Also, please see the following help article on changing the default font style and size when writing mail.

I find the new inbox very difficult to see messages. The font and organization of messages is not suitable for an old **** like me.

Small font is hard to read. Why is the top header so large?? Also cannot adjust column widths.

Dev worker and manager who approved New Mail font size should be executed by anti-aircraft gun Kim Jong-un style. Please increase font size so I can return my magnifying glass to its right place in the ant-burning kit.

I am 62 and a thicker clearer (larger font) or the ability to change font and font size to own preference would be very helpful.

...and what idiot decided that the default font size should be 'tiny', and that no matter how many times you change it, it reverts back to that size whenever you make a new paragraph? Do us all a favour and give us an option to revert back to the previous version - this one is an ill-thought through mess.

Default font is sort of ok, but too narrow and not much contrast. Display font colors, not just in Compose, need to be changeable to allow for better contrast control. Add the fixed font Consolas for better letter number differentiation (includes slash zero).

I would like to change the color of my font when sending e-mails. All I see is how to bold and increase the size. I also would like to be able to underline words in my e-mails.
