That simple is not true. My Outlook 2007 is set to download only a copy of the email to my PC. The email remains on the server, that I can access from anywhere using a tablet, smartphone, another computer, etc.

the only thing I can find is changing the color scheme choices are blue, silver or black but that's not what you are asking for. I do not see a way to change the selected email color

Other then mail, what would you possibly use it for, that you couldn`t do yourself ?

Contacts ?

Addresses ?

Those you can just create in word pad.

No.. If you purchased the Microsoft suite, you have the right to use Outlook as a standalone for what you will on your own system.
AddRam... I'm Right... And that's stands for all that's within the suite.

OK! Good input. But! AddRam's Application is wrong when it comes to the suite. Not starting anything.. Nice input... Try this..

I don`t get it, why are you addressing that statement to me ?

As stated, you can change the colors in office to blue, black or silver, but the background where you type is still white, but as also stated, don`t see how it helps the OP.

You can also change the font color, I thought that would help more then changing the background, but maybe if the words were say red and the background were say black he could then read it, but being color blind I don`t see how anything would help, I would think it would be one big blur, after my brothers stroke, that`s all he could see, couldn`t even see TV anymore, God rest his soul
