Every time you open your Outlook mailbox, you may be tired of seeing a massive number of emails, due to the fact that all the emails are in the same color and font size. In this situation, visual fatigue may occur to you, resulting in troubles to figure out where these emails come from.

Firstly open your MS Outlook. You will see the “View” option on the top of the interface and click on it. Then you would be required to locate “View Settings” option and pitch on it.
