FRUSTRATING FONT COLOR


G

Guest

I am using Outlook 2007 Beta 2 and Microsoft Word 2007 Beta 2 is my editor
for Outlook, in case that matters.

When I create an email the font color is yellow. And when I send someone an
email and they hit 'reply' to answer me the same thing occurs, the words they
type are in yellow also. Even if they have a signature, the test is turned
yellow. The email addressed are in black but the body of the email is in
yellow.

I am not using any type of stationery. And this only happens on my end when
I create a NEW message. If I reply to someone's email the text and color are
what I have specified in Outlook.

I have never had this to happen. I have done all that I know how to do--

1) Tools>Options>Mail Format> Stationery and Fonts

** NOTE: For reasons unknown to me, the choice: 'New Mail Messages' is
grayed out and cannot be selected or changed. However the text appearing in
the box is shown as black.

2) Tools>Options>Mail Format> Editor Options

3 Tools>Options>Other > Advanced Options
Under 'Appearance' you can choose the font, but not the color

Help me please.

Thanks for your reply.

My stationery default theme is: BLANK.

When I go to Tools>Options>Mail formet>Stationery and Fonts and select
Stationery then BLANK, nothing appears on the right to show me what fonts or
colors will be used.
