"incoming message"???
"outgoing email"???

I'm guessing you mean message body and quoted text?

If the general font-size of the KDE-menu's and other applications is
good, then you only need to change the size of the message body and
quoted text.

The size of the Message body is set by selecting "Message Body" in
the Appearence -> Fonts -> "Apply to:" combobox (remember red
circle?), and subsequently choosing a larger font size.

The quoted text initially appears smaller that the rest of the
message body. Uncheck the "Use smaller font for quoted
text"-checkbox on Appearence -> "Message Window".
