Fault in font in message body in KMail

KMail on TDE on Wheezy, all fully updated.

Because my husband had an eye operation today I wanted to enlarge everything 
in KMail for him.  I cannot enlarge the text in the message body.  After 
about ten tries the font changed from serif to sans-serif, but that is all.  
When I change the message body setting, the headers change, be they long or 
short - but he doesn't want to read those.  The text of the email remains 
stubbornly tiny.

The date in the message list also fails to change font.  The rest changes!

I have tried to have everything fully updated, but am getting:

Suggestions, please!  The poor man can't read at the moment - and he now can't 
easily keep up with his email either!

The eye problem is only temporary, so I would like to solve this fast!  I 
wondered about just reinstalling KMail, but don't want to mess up his mail.
