How Do I Change the Font Size In Mail for the ‘Mailbox’ Section?

Hello Gary:
You have helped me so many times. Thank you.

In Mail: On the ‘Mailbox’ side (on the left), the fonts are 4 times bigger than the rest of the columns (center and right) and I do not know how to change the size of it…any suggestions?

It was normal when I first set it up. I do not know what has happened.
I am using iMac.
Sierra OS

Thank you very much.

    There is a setting in System Preferences, General to make the "Sidebar icon size" larger. That will change the icons in the Mailbox list in Mail, but not the font size.
    You can change the message font default sizes in Mail, Preferences, Fonts & Colors. But that only change the message font, not the Mailbox sidebar.
    Do you have any third-party extensions or app installed that play with system settings or fonts?
    If you can't figure it out, I would take it to the Genius Bar and have them take a look.

    Thank you for the kind response.
    I have done what you are saying and I do not have any third party ever since you said there was no need to do so.
    I have uninstalled all.

    I will do as instructed.
    Thank you for taking the time to answer me.
    First time I see such a prompt action from some one in this mater.
