Previously I explained to you how you could find colors on the color-hex website and use them in Windows Live Mail.

Now, Richie has a question about Yahoo! Mail. He writes:   “I use Yahoo e-mail will color-hex work with it ? Also will it work in the same way as live mail Thanks . By the way all of your hard work is greatly appreciated.”

To pick a color for text in your Yahoo Mail, first open your inbox and select compose.

yahoo-inbox-compose

At the bottom of the new message, you’ll see a menu where you can insert files and make formatting choices for the message.

inbox-compose-format

Then select the icon that looks like an A inside a square.

inbox-compose-format-color

You’ll see a choice of colors for Text and Highlight purposes.

inbox-compose-text-colors

You can’t create custom colors, like you can in some programs. You’re limited to the 24 colors available. You can click the text icon for a choice of 7 fonts and six sizes for your text.

Another option, if you have your heart set on a custom color, would be to type your text and select the custom colors in a program like Word.

text-colors-word

Then copy/paste the text into your Yahoo! message.

custom-color

Hope this helps.
