MS Outlook email

Hello,
I am using Outlook 2010, my question has to do with the incoming "Inbox"  The messages, as they come in and are not read, have a "bold black" font type.  Once they are read they are NOT bold type.  One would think that this difference would be sufficient to note which email has been read, and which have not.  My eyes just cannot detect this difference, so I am hoping to change that "bold black" to "bold RED" type.  I have searched the Options setting and just cannot find a setting that will do this.  Is there a setting for this?  If so, please send me the path/location for this setting.
thanks

Click Tools, Organize, click Using Colors, then click Automatic Formatting. Here you can create color settings for read and unread mail.

This is not an answer to the specific request, but if you are trying to distinguish the unread email can you use the "unread" mail folder that is under the search folder?
