Is there a way to change the highlight color in the Outlook 2013 navigation pane? No matter which background is used (white, light gray or dark gray) the contrast to the light blue highlight on selected items is inadequate.

This depends on whether Outlook respects the Windows default selections for screen handling.  If it does, then yes, the highlight color can be changed; see the image below.  (However, it will also change for every other program in the system, so pick a color you can live with elsewhere.)
