    Some of my incoming emails have colour highlight ( pink/red) for no reason at all. I checked Rules and there is nothing there to suggest that.!!! :eek:

    How do I get rid of the colouring ?

    thanks for your help

    I am running OSX.4.2 on PB G4, 1Ghz, 1GB RAM, 100 GB HD

    Are they marked as Junk Mail?

    Because if you have Junk Mail set to 'training', it highlights those messages it thinks are 'junk' so that you can spot them easily. It also doesn't load the images for them.

    Find a pink message, see if it says 'mail thinks this is junk' and then tell it Not Junk and see if the colour vanishes.

    If you look under "Viewing" in the Mail preferences, it says "Highlight related messages using colour" then a colour choice. Mine's blue by default, but is yours set to red? It means if you get a reply from someone related to a previous subject, it will highlight all related emails the same colour when one is selected. You can turn it off by unticking the box, or change the colour if you want.
