    Sorry I failed to mention I am using Windows Live Mail 2012

    In the original message I set the font to Arial Black

    The sample was a bluish color

    The font color in the messages are light blueish

    I know not of Windows Live, but until you get it fixed, you might try a quick "Ctrl-A" to read it inverted.
