In my Outlook 2016, there is no Hyperlink option in the Styles dialog. I scroll to the bottom of that dialog, and the bottom option is List Paragraph. Can anyone tell me how I can add Hyperlink below List Paragraph, please? Thanks in advance for help from anyone. The FollowedHypertext that Carolyn mention below is not in my Styles dialog. It never ceases to amaze me how Bill Gates accumulated an eleven-figure fortune making such garbage. - Warren Miller

Thank you! I prefer the blue but my copy always went to red. I spent lots of time changing everything to blue. This tip worked perfectly!

Unfortunately, the instructions do not explain how to change the "used link" color, only that of the initial link.

Modify the FollowedHypertext style.

Thanks! Been looking for this for awhile.

In Outlook, there is an additional style you need to choose, called FollowedHypertext. This is the style you can modify as you see fit. Now, there is one question that I HAVE and that is ... you can create and modify styles in Outlook itself, but when you view it on a mobile device that uses Android Marshmallow, the link colors revert to the classic blue. Not sure how to override this.
