See It In Color!

So, you’re an MS Outlook user, huh? Think adding color to your e-mail is limited to Outlook Express users? Nope, you can do it too! 🙂

The first thing you need to do is select a message from the person you want to be color highlighted.

Next, you’re looking for the Organize button located on the Standard toolbar. (You can also find Organize under the Tools menu).

The Organize feature will open at the top of your mailbox.

On the left, you should find the Using Colors option.

Click it.

The statements in this feature are simple enough.

By default, the first statement is trying to color messages “from” someone and the senders name from the highlighted message is already filled in, so all you have to do is to pick a color from the drop down list at the end.

Click the Apply Color button.


Never overlook an e-mail from that person again!

The second statement (only found in newer versions of Outlook) is a feature that will highlight all messages sent to you, and only you, in the color you designate. If you want to use this one, pick a color from the drop down list and click the Turn on button.

Who knew that adding a bit of color to your Outlook life could make sorting e-mail so easy?!
