    I just purchased a Microsoft Surface Pro 3 and I’m a Postbox (great and cheap eMail client) user. With the high DPI screen of the Surface 3, you’ll get microscopically small fonts, no matter what you try.

    After quite a bit of searching I found this trick:

    In PostBox go to “Tools” – “Options” – “Advanced” and click the “Config Editor …” button.

    A warning appears, click “I’ll be careful, I promise!“.

    Now type in the edit box: 

    layout.css.devPixelsPerPx

    Change the value (1.0 is default) to a higher number – I had to go all the way to 1.5.

    Warning – DO NOT EXCEED 1.5.
    It appears (untested) that Postbox will no longer work with values > 1.5.
