Click on Settings (top right of screen) on the General tab, scroll down to find Default Text Style and change it to the type and size you want.

This will work when you send out an e-mail but when you receive e-mails from others and you reply paragraph by paragraph you may find the text goes back to small.  To prevent this (and anyone with a visual impairment needs to know this) this is what you do.

When an e-mail comes in, click on reply. Right click and choose Select All, the whole letter will become highlighted.  From the toolbar above your letter you'll see the little T sign with a red cross which is Remove Formatting, click on that.
Then click on the Font size (in my case I need Large to see it properly)  and the whole letter will change to large,

You can then reply to your correspondent without the text reverting to small all the time which has driven me mad until I discovered this solution.
