The solution was in the stationary settings. Even though the selection was "No Theme" the message body fonts were showing yellow. Had to pick a theme (I chose Arctic) and removed the selections for Vivid Colors, Active Graphics, and Background Image. Then on the main screen, the option to "Always Use My Fonts" became enabled. I selected this option and set all 3 fonts, including messages with Plain Text format to Calibri 10. This fixed the issue for all users having the symptom.
