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.

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.
