    Thats what i did today, i renamed all by rules by color name. Than i just deleted duplicating rules and combined people under the color i wanted them as. So if i ever max out of how many people can be in one rule, i should be than able to add some new rules. I also did the same for my outbox.

    this is picture from my inbox. I have the catergory selected next to the people, wrote the rule. Will it change their names to color selected in the category box?

    Outlook 2010 conditional formatting

    it seems it keeps asking for more rules, even if i hit finish the color doesn't not apply to the person in my inbox, still shows black. Am i doing this right? Could Outlook have made this easier to use? Is there a chance this will be changed in the future?

    Outlook 2010 conditional formatting

    I apologize for not understanding this, i'm pretty quick to learn things but this still got me so confused. Ok so for instance i want to make myself Purple. So in my inbox i set myself to Purple category. But i don't understand how to write the rule to make my name appear in purple.

I found in 2010 version where that option is but it won't let me add new people to make colors. even in the older version it kept telling me i could not add new rules, i've exceeded the limit. All the...
