font color wont change


B

Bill Watson

When I compose a new email the font defaults to light yellow. I have gone to
Tool>options>mail format>stationery and fonts>new mail message/font
I have changed the font and the color but when I compose a new message it is
still yellow.

I can manually change each email to black (or another color) but I want it
to be done automatically.

Can anyone help?

What version of Outlook? Are you using Word as your email editor?

I am using Outlook 2007, I do not think this version uses word but it uses
components of word. I may be wrong on that.

Correct, Outlook 2007 has one editor - Word. If you use the entire suite,
you have access to most of Word's features, if only outlook, it’s a
component of word and the features are limited.

In the themes section of the fonts dialog, does it say no theme and use
theme's font at the top?

The theme from the composition of a new email screen is set to "office."

In the "Styles" window the the "normal" sees to be the problem. The font is
set to "ivory." How do I change this and make it the default?
Thanks for your help. :)

Under themes it says "Themes are not installed." The option is not
selectable either.

This solution worked with a person experiencing the same problem you
described…the reply font changing to white when replying to a message. The
end user uses Outlook 2007 and Windows XP and Office XP. Themes are not
installed.

1.Begin a new message
2.Select the Format Text tab
3.Show the Font dialog box
4.Select the following settings:
a.Font: +Body
b.Font style: Regular
c.Size: 11
d.Font color: Automatic
e.Effects: select nothing
5.Click OK
