I need to send an email through powershell and that works fine. I need to make the font bigger and change the color of the subject so it will attract attention. I tried html tags using a variable but of course it did not work because the subject is not html.

Anyone know of a way to accomplish this?

I don't think you can modify the look of the subject in an email message.
Just put some !!! before it and hope the spam filter does not catch it :)

Just think of the various way the spammers would abuse this feature: giant blinking subjects, anyone?

HTH,

Concur.  SMTP Subject headers do not parse HTML tags and do not support any text/font modifications.
