Organize Messages in Outlook

I forgot how to color code my messages in Outlook, so I thought I should jot it down for next time.


  1. On the Tools menu, click Organize to display the
    Ways to Organize Inbox
  2. Click Using Colors.
  3. Click an e-mail message in your Inbox, and you will find the name of the
    sender displayed in the Color messages box. Alternatively, you can type
    the name in the Color messages box yourself.
  4. Select a color from the list.
  5. Click Apply Color.
  6. To color-code e-mail messages sent to you only, choose a color from the
    Show messages sent only to me in
    list. Click Turn on to set the
    color. To undo, click Turn off.

  1. Not sure if you’re around to get this or if you’re off vacationing in the land of Mickey already – but could you let me know if it’s ok for me to post this on ScriptyGoddess as a “Guest Authored” post when you get a chance? 🙂
