Downloaded news with huge font on Kindle

Since a few weeks ago the news items I download and email to my K3 display with a really big font. It used to be OK.
Does anyone know what to do about this? Is there a setup somewhere or a CSS?

PS:
I asked this question in the Recipe forum as well, but there was no answer. Usually this means that either there is no solution or the question was answered before. If the latter, can some kind soul please point me to the relevant thread. I honestly looked for it, but couldn't find anything.

Or it means you have not provided enough information on which to diagnose your problem.
  1. What OS are you using?
  2. What version of calibre are you using? Saying the latest isn't an answer, please state a number.
  3. Go to Preferences - Behavior, what format are you saving the recipe as (see attached)?
  4. Is it Mobi? If not change this to Mobi for your Kindle.
  5. Does this happen with every recipe?
  6. If not please state the recipe you're having troubles with in the Calibre Recipe sub-forum.
  7. Go to Preferences - Common options, do you have Disable Font size rescaling checked (see attached)?
  8. If no to the previous question, what settings do you have showing.
After you provide the info someone may have an idea where your problem lies or ask you more questions. The settings I have in the attached images are what I use and are not being suggested for common use. I purposely increase the font size to 16pt as a way to avoid reading glasses.

Good Luck.
