My brother has a Win 10 laptop using Outlook 2003 for email. As do I.
When he opens an email with banners and illustrations such as utility bills or from his car dealer the email opens 2x smaller than normal. Doesn't happen in the just text type Emails.

When he forwards the small emails to me, I open them and they are normal size.
Any idea why this happens and how to fix

I don't know, and I hate answers like I'm about to give you - but, I wouldn't be using Outlook 2003 to open email of any kind. It's 14 years old! He'd be safer to use a webmail client than that, if he didn't want to upgrade Office. I don't know what his operating system is, but the Mail client in Windows 7 or 10 should also work.

Both he and I have Win 10 with OL 2003. I know it's not the safest. He will probably go to some version of Office sometime. Just trying figure out why his email shows smaller than mine.
We both bought stand alone OL2003 disks way back when

Possibly a DPI setting?

Have him hover over one of these, or click on it and hover, then hold down his CTL key and use his mouse's scroll wheel and scroll upwards. If that brings it up to the correct size, select a different email, then come back to the one he just zoomed in on. Does it retain the setting?

What is the size of his screen? Don't forget that text will simply reflow, html cannot.

He has a very high resolution. The slide bar is at 350%

He has a 15.6 screen. You can use Control/wheel or Control +/-
Switching between Email the zoom stays
Both work until you get out of OL. Then it's back to small. Don't know about reflow.

Reflow is what happens in Notepad when you turn on Word Wrap and you've got long lines of text. You can change the size of the window and the text will "re-flow" to fit your window. Same in Outlook when you're dealing with plain text.

My bro and I installed Office 10 Pro on his win 10 laptop yesterday.
( That's what he wanted, Office 10) Today I moved the Personal folders
from OL 2003 to OL 2010. Everything he wanted went over and is working fine
