You cannot control the color of an email in the recipients inbox. You can annoyingly mark it as urgent.

It would be awful if this was possible ;-)
This is not something you can do from your end.
only the recipient can descide how the mail is displayed.

The only thing I could think of is to set email options, such as high priority or confidential.
This (if the recipients email client supports this) would mark the email in the recipient box as such (usually with a little exclamation mark or something similar)
But it will not be as noticable as you would like it to be.

Let your client know that it would probably be bad for business if this would be possible, as the recipients would start to hate her for "coloring" their mailbox ;-)

I agree with the other experts. Colorizing or highlighting an email is an option the receiver to set for themselves, but not an option you can set other than marking an email Highly Important or Urgent.

Unless you mean the actual text of the message... Email is HTML (aside from the text version) so you can bold, size, and color your text.
But if the real problem is that people are ignoring this lady, making her emails red text is really just gonna piss people off. Maybe she should look at why she is being ignored instead of trying to force a technological solution on a non-technical iasue

Thanks for the comments.  I'm actually looking for a solution.

Shes the owner only emails from her corporate email system to employees.

Here's what I figured out but attempting to make it automatic:

1)  Click New message

2)   Click follow up Flag and select Custom

3)    Uncheck Flag for me:

4)     Check Flag for Recipients

5)     Select in flag to section:    "read"

6)     Select Reminder for no more than 15 Min's in the past. and send.

When it shows up in recipients inbox it is red with no Alert message.

How Can I automate this??
