Windows 7: stuck font color

16 Nov 2009   #1

stuck font color

The font color in e-mail replies or new mail is red. Even though I can change it in Format>Fonts the color always reverts to red. How do I change what seems to be a default color.

It's a little hard to even offer a guess when you have not told us what email program you are using - there are dozens out there, after all.

Thanks. I should have mentioned it was Live Mail. I did get an answer from MSFT, which solved the problem. The solution was Tools>options>compose>fonts>color and size. This changed the default while my attempt to change via Format, under Reply, produced only temporary results.

Perhaps creating "change default" might be too instructive. Maybe in Win 20.

Maybe in Win 20.

Glad you got a response from MS, and that your problem was resolved. Thanks for posting the solution.
