Font Color Question in Outlook

Up until last week the font color in the reading pane of my Outlook 2007 was blue.  I liked it.  Suddenly, it is no longer blue.  Is this a setting somewhere?  What did I do and how do I get it back?  This is just the reading pane only I am referring to, not everywhere in Outlook.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just to confirm, you're not specifying the AutoPreview section but indeed the Reading Pane (which shows the entire email but in a separate window to the right or below the list of emails)?

+ Under the General tab click on Colors
+ Make sure "Use Windows Colors" is unchecked
+ Select the color you would like to use.

^ Outlook 2003.

Or from Outlook 2010, View > View Settings > Other Settings. In the AutoPreview section, click the Font button and then you'll many options to customize with, which includes color.

Unchecking that checkbox will allow you to change the Text color to blue... I tried this with WinXP/Outlook 2003 and his suggestion worked. It didn't work for me though using Win7/Outlook 2010...
