Hi, gpersand.

Yes, this is possible via customizing the view.  Here's how

1.  Right-click a column header in the message list and select Customize Current View
2.  Click the Automatic Formatting button
3.  Click the Add button to add a new formatting rule
4.  Click the Condition button and set the condition
5.  Click the Font button and set the font

How do I apply this to emails from a particular user?

By setting the condition to emails from that user.  When the Filter dialog-box appears click the From button and select the user or type in their email address.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Works fine. Do you know of a way of having different colours depending on what user sends you an email?

You're welcome.

You can build any condition you want in the filter.  That includes messages from a particular person that contain certain words or phrases.
