Here's how:

  1. Open your Inbox as normal.
  2. Choose the Tools, Organize command.
  3. Click Using Colors.
  4. In the first bulleted item, select the options you want. (You can click on any of the messages in your inbox to automatically select the "from" field.
  5. Click Apply Color.

Any new messages that come into your Inbox from that specific sender will be displayed in your chosen colour. (Happiness is.)

Until next week.
