Need to change font colour in OE 6.
Is there a simple way to do this?
I have tried "TOOLS" - "OPTIONS" - "READ", but whatever I change there, it is blank!

Type your message (or a bit of it) then click Format>Font and in the box at the bottom left hand corner is a colour option.

i.e. You have to put the cursor in the message space before the format font option appears. You don't have to type any of the message first. Doh!

By the way, if you want to alter the default font size, style, colour etc of all your messages, you use Tools>Options>Compose>Font Settings

Tried your suggestion - didn't work!
Thanks!

Further to my recent reply to your email, I have managed to change the font colour by clicking "FORMAT", then I change from "PLAIN" to RICH text (HTML). VOILA! - COLOUR!
I only want this as a temporary measure until I get a new set of printer carts. My old back up printer only prints in pale blue due to it drying out!
So thank you very much for your responses, it helped me a great deal!
