I think so, but the contacts have be categorized first with the color.

Go to the rules in Outlook, and follow the wizard, in the 2nd box you can assign the person it to a color category.

On Outlook ribbon, go to View -> View Settings and click the "Conditional Formatting..." button. Now click "Add", name the rule like "CEO" select required Font color (red) and click the "Condition....". There you can select "From..." (CEO). OK, OK, OK.

As for the second requirement (mail in copy): follow the same way, name it like "CC", select blue font color and specify the condition as "Where I am" "on the CC line with other people".
