There is a problem with the native email app when zooming the messages. The text and images are blurry and don't sharpen after zooming in to see the text better! Doesn't happen in all email messages. Is there a fix coming for this?

It seem that this issue is related to how long or wide the mail is.

The behavior is the same with std. and exchange mail accounts.

The zooming in with such email will also loose the white dots on upper left corner and to get the dots and control back one must realize to zoom out enough first.

one way to go around this problem would be possibly the support for oncoming landscape position feature, but since it isn't supported yet in this recently released update, zooming must be used while on portrait mode.

I was looking one of my emails and it had quite wide pictures, which are causing this issue as mail app tries to show the native width of the mail.

I think the mail app should have some fixed width for layout and in case the content is wider the horizontal scrolling would be activated insted zooming.

Also back/forward navigation disappears when zooming an HTML email, and don't appear again until zooming out again. But maybe I should add that as a separate issue?

Separate issue might work better and get more discussion.
