    I want to create a rule where the "From" and "Subject" text of all received messages in my Inbox from a certain person changes to a green or red font colour rather than the standard black.

    Anyone know how?

    1) Right click on one of the display fields above your emails (doesnt really matter which one, but lets go with the 'From" field)
    2) Click "Customize Current View"
    3) Click "Automatic Formatting" which will open the Automatic Formating window.
    4) Click "ADD" and name your rule whatever you want, for this example we will call it "Bob"
    5) After you name it Bob, click "CONDITION" (Opens Filter Window)
    6) Type in the address you want to set the condition in the "FROM" field and click OK. This will take you back to the Automatic Formatting window
    7) Now Click "FONT" and this is where you will select what color/font/size you would like to change said email to.

    Note: you can put multiple email addresses in one condition, but on 1 color.
