Have messages sent only to me appear in color

Applies to

When you start Outlook in the morning to check your e-mail, do you want to know at a glance which messages were sent only to you? That's usually the stuff you care most about, right? You can easily find which messages were sent only to you by coloring those messages. This helps you to sort those messages from the "noise" that you get from being on distribution lists or being on the Cc or Bcc lines of messages.

Color messages sent only to you

  1. On the Tools menu, click Organize.
  2. Under Ways to Organize Inbox, click Using Colors.
  3. After Show messages sent only to me in, click the color that you want in the list.
  4. Click Turn on.
  5. Close the Ways to Organize Inbox pane.
