Change subject line font so it is red

I Love A Deal 2,109 851 October 10, 2011 at 08:42 PM
Is there a way to make the subject line text red (the color) in an email so that the recipient see the red text in his inbox? Want to do this for one email that is being sent. If so, how is that done?

email options available: Hotmail, Outllok and Gamil.
Your help is greatly appreciated.

A way for you to set it for when you send it no, A way for him to set it so on a condition that it will be red maybe depends on the email client. Outlook can do this, gmail can get a color label.

You cannot change the color formatting for outgoing messages in the subject line in Outlook client. You can set the client to change the color of the subject line as the receiver, but not as the sender.

In outlook you can set it as a high importance tag. This changes how it is displayed but I dont think it will make the entire thing red. This will work if your recipient is also using outlook. I dont think it will work with the web based mail options.

Hotmail is quite limited. You cannot do much message formatting outside of what is inside the body of the message. GMail is a little better and I think Outlook client is probably the most customizable. Those were his three options so specifically I don't think what he wishes is possible without tweaking the recipient end before sending the message.

He said outlook was available that is why I tossed out my idea. Your right about how the recipients show things differently. There is no universal way to do this.
