Yes, sorry: I meant changing the default inside Roundcube. Ctrl-+ is 
already being used as a workaround (although this is a little more awkward 
in our case as people are directed to one of three HTTP servers on login).

However if an eldery Professor with poor eye sight has to do this on each 
new computer that they walk up to then they will conclude that it is a 
problem with Roundcube, rather than a problem with their eye sight.

I guess that I could knock together a larry-large skin, which is identical 
to larry but with larger fonts.
