Hi,
How can I color the font of emails green, that arrive in Outlook when the Subject has the following in it:
"9thTee Order Confirmation"?  I have looked at rules but do not see anywhere to do this.

Thanks,
Mark

I think it would make perfect sense if you cannot change the color of the email .. nobody wants their email to be changed once they get to recipeint inbox. I checked the rules in outlook 2002 that i have and i donot find a way to do it using rules.

Imagine someone sends you an email in blue color and if you can get it as black color and that would be different what they have sent , wont it be ?

I'm sorry, I was actually meaning the single line listing that you see on the Outlook screen of all the emails in the current folder.
