How to turn on/off Column Sort Shading in outlook 2003

The "Received" column, which is the column I sort by in outlook, has a slightly blueish/gray color to it.  It may have been there all along but I don't think it has until recently. I am tring to find a way to turn it off as I find it somewhat annoying.  Anyone have any ideas?

    This isn't something you can turn off.  The color moves to which ever column you sort by.  I believe it's been there all along, but since it's so faint it's not very noticeable.

    I find this interesting as other individual's screens where I work are not this way. They also sort by the "Received" column.

    I have to look at my LCD from an angle to see the color in the column.  If I look directly from the front I don't see it.  You could be seeing contrast/brightness differences in others screens.

    I'm still not sure about this but have found no other answers.  I do a faint shadow on my personal unit.  Thank you for your prompt response.
