Your body would need HTML formatting.  Something like
$msg.Body = "<font color=red>VMware HealthCheck vCenter2</font>"

Open in new window

You have to make sure you're sending the email as HTML as well.

Hmm, I have the following where would I enable it for HTML ?

$enablemail="yes"
$emailattachment = "C:\scripts\VMware\HealthCheckvCenter2.xlsx"
$smtpServer = "ux3t" 
$mailfrom = "VMware Healtcheck <VMWareTech>"
$mailto = "Me"

if ($enablemail -match "yes") 
{ 
	$msg = new-object Net.Mail.MailMessage
	$att1 = new-object Net.Mail.Attachment($emailattachment)
	$smtp = new-object Net.Mail.SmtpClient($smtpServer) 
	$msg.From = $mailfrom
	$msg.To.Add($mailto) 
	$msg.Subject = "VMware Health vCenter2"
	$msg.Body = "VMware HealthCheck vCenter2"
	$msg.Attachments.Add($att1)
	$smtp.Send($msg)
	$att1.Dispose()

Add the following anywhere after $msg is defined and before it is sent.
$msg.IsBodyHTML = $true
