I recently did a clean install of Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. When I reply to an e-mail in Outlook 2007, the text is blue. I can manually change this color to black but I want it to be black by default.

I went to Tools/Options/MailFormat/Stationery and Fonts and checked the "Pick a new color when replying or forwarding" box. Then I clicked the Font button.

The font window opened up. It has three places to make changes: Font Color, Underline Style, and Underline Color. The Font Color drop down box was grayed out and does not allow me to make any changes.

Anyone know what is going on here? I've seen others with the same problem when I Googled, but no solutions.
