I have a small screen and MANY email mailboxes. I'd like to make the side panel font size smaller, but I can't find an option for it. Is there one?

(I can change the font size in messages and in the message list--that's not what I'm talking about.)

This thread says System Preferences -> General controls it.

Thanks. I don't like the answer (gives you very little control!) but it is something at least... – Alex Feinman Sep 6 '11 at 17:55

this was already answered, but you can go to > Preferences > Fonts and Colors > Message List font to change this.
