I am trying to help someone with OE and how they can restore the color fonts [in email] which they tell is white only in the drop down boxes. They use WinXp. I suggested they do the following but they tell me it doesn't work, so anyone here know what to do? Thanks. In Outlook Express,.... 1. Click on FORMAT 2. Click on FONTS 3. At the bottom of that menu, click COLOR. 4. On this menu, click DEFINE CUSTOM COLORS. Another menu appears. 5. CHOOSE YOUR COLORS and add them. When finished, click OK. That should do it.
