    Windows Live Mail Font Color Gray?

    My Windows Live mail [unread] all is colored gray. I found a link on Google that said that was "by design" and that changing the color of the font of "disabled items" would fix it.

    Here's the site:

    http://liveunplugged.wordpress.com/2...ive-mail-2009/

    It did.

    But:

    Why is new unread mail colored as disabled by Windows Live, and, how else can I do it to get a black font so that I can still tell disabled items?

    Regards,
    Chuck Billow

    That link is about the gray color of Windows disabled items being used for READ mail, not unread.

    Which version of Windows Live Mail? There was apparently a bug in earlier versions: Windows Live email Header Color

    Bruce, that link was as you said -- but the solution still worked. I probably have an older version [I didn't "upgrade" because I didn't want to lose stationery].

    I'll give it a look.

    Thanks,
    Chuck

    RR/Bruce;

    It evidently was the version of WLM I had, because I just updated and it seems OK now....

    Thanks,
    Chuck
