Outlook 2007 invisible typing characters

I just upgraded to office 2007 and now I have this weird problem. When I type an email, especially when I reply to an email, the characters that I'm typing are not visible. If I make a typo, the red marker shows up but I can't see the letters. If I right-click for edit, I can see what I wrote in a very light color.

Any help would be appreciated!

It sounds like you are typing in white on a white background - try changing the font colour

Hello alandala,

The reply background may be set the same color as the letter color.  So you cannot see what you are typing.  Change the background to contrasting color in Outlook Options menu.



Hope this helps!

alandala,

To change the background color in Outlook 2007
# On the Message Options tab, in the Themes group, click Page Color.
# Click a color on the Theme Colors or Standard Colors palette. To remove the color, click No Color.
