I am new to this list . . . 

I am using Ubuntu 14.04.  I decided to install  3.13.3 because I was
having trouble with Ubuntu's the default version of Evolution. ie
 Couldn't get Junk/Spamassassin working.

I know 3.13.* is still in development but it seems to work okay
nevertheless.  My main problem is the font size on the compose mail
screen.  I seems stuck on a small font despite my attempts to change
that in "preferences".  So I have a few questions please:

1. Is this a bug or is there a solution within 3.13.*

2. I can't find a .deb file to go to the latest stable version 3.12.*

3. Will I lose my current mail, addresses book etc if I change

4.  Does this font come out small as you see it on your monitor?

Thank you,

Welcome to the list!  First, if you use Plain Text, as is requested by
this list, the problem pretty much goes away.

However...  I just know you're going to say "But most of my messages are
in HTML"  :)  So are mine!

The small text on my screen, when I compose a message, is somewhat of a
pain. I agree.  But, when I get a message back, as a reply, I see that
the text is fairly properly sized.  I guess we are both obsessing about
a mostly non-existing problem.  Besides, we can't control what fonts are
installed on the recipient's computer.  Our carefully crafted message
can be rendered unreadable if we were to use a font that does not exist
on the end computer.

As an example, I had my wife send me a message, from her Windows
machine, using Thunderbird, and composed in Cooper Black.  When I
received it, Evolution disregarded the font as it is not installed on my
machine and showed the message in the regular font we see.

I would still like to be able to chose which font is used so I could
make sure I am sending MS TT type fonts and would know pretty much what
the end user will see.

Can't help you with the downgrade question.  Sorry.
