Great forum but I am still having an Outlook issue. I am new to Outlook 2007 and have a question. Is there a way so that when you receive a reply from a person that their font color is black? It seems to be blue by default. I know how to change it so that all of my replies go out as black but would like it so that all of the replies coming in are black without asking the sender to make the change as well. Is this possible within Outlook or possibly a system wide change within Windows?

Thanks in advance for any help or if I need to clarify a little better.

When the sender using HTML, you don't have control over the font color. It can't be changed in Outlook or Windows. You could use Read all mail as plain text (It's in tools, Trust Center.) There is a setting in Tool,s Options, Mail format, stationery and fonts where you can tell outlook to use/not use CSS and to use your defaults when possible. This works for some mail but not all email, depending on how it was designed.

Thanks Diane. I'll see if our user will live with that. It works on mine but maybe she wants to see the html coded mail???

Take care.

Yeah, if she's like me, she'll prefer the HTML format, even on messages that don't really need HTML. I just think its easier on my eyes. HTML newsletters and ads are header to read, but it's easy to switch to HTML per message (look at the info bar).
