    I am using windows 7, internet explorer and orange e-mail.
    I am wanting to send a friend a reply consisting of his many questions and my replies.
    I would like it to be formatted like this
    q.one
    a.one
    q.two
    a.two
    and so on
    Is this possible? There are no obvious boxes like the A above that let me change the font colour so I have been trying to use embedded codes but without luck.
    Anyone any idea how this can be done?

    I assume your talking about the orange e-mail, both explorer and firefox show the same orange e-mail page

    well thanks for offering to help at all. Your question about which application I was using led me to look at alternatives and a solution to my problem.
    I'm sure many people are pleased you take the time to offer advice, I know I am.

    I would be suprised if they don't have it in their webmail. Perhaps your webmail is set to plain text (which is no formatting at all)?

    Can you post a screen shot of this "Orange email" ?
    Then we MAY be able to see what you are using.
    Also a Screen shot with this orange email program open would help more?

    I haven't been able to find anywhere to alter settings if I am using a 'text only' setting.
    The EE forum has failed to get a reply to 'can I colour text'.

    It appears that you are using the internet version of fsmail.
    You need to login at their site and see if you can find some help from them.
