Hello,
I’m trying to create a new email message form from the default email message form in Outlook 2019, the only difference is I want the subject line background to be a different color.

When I open the form in the editor the style totally changes, I now have 3d buttons for To and Cc, I completely loose the From and Bcc fields, and the colors revert back to something from the 90s, the form looks nothing like the original.

The process seems simple enough, open a new email, select the developer tab, design this form, make the required changes.
Is this how it is or am I missing something?

I would really like the forms to look like 2020 and not 1995...lol

Regards
Al

That is how the forms designer works - and if you edit the form, you loose the pretty form and get the ugly gray form. :( You need to use a forms region or customize the buttons & background etc to make them look more like the current form.
