The only way I could find is to change the system color that applies to text in the windows.  This change however, would affect every message and dialog windows on the system.  To change only a Message box would require a lot of trickery, this trickery I have not found.

Yes, you have to make your own message box. But don't despair, here's one I've prepared earlier. I'm going to put a sample project on my homepage for you.

Please feel free to modify the form frmMessage to your heart's content, but I suggest you study it first to understand how it works at the moment.
