    Once again, Microsoft has removed useful functionality and made a product less able to satisfy users needs. Way to go Microsoft.

    As others have said, this does not work and it seems to be an Outlook limitation. Since at least Outlook 2000 you could responde with inline comments and have them stand out while "normal" reply font was unchanged. How is it possible that this doesn't work any more?

    Does not work the way it should. You should be able to set the font in just the inline comments so they stand out. These are tied to the 'reply' font. If any Microsoft developers are watching, this would be a beneficial tool if it worked correctly. I used to use Lotus Notes in the early 2000's and it did this - changing the amount of time and accuracy of replies for everyone. It changed the way we worked and made it more efficiency.

    This does not work. It changes the font color of all text when replying.

    Same inquiry, if it is possible to only change the inline comments font color?

    Useless. This method changes also the text appearance of the e-mail answer, not only inline comments.

    When I try this, there is no option for color change at that location...

    Good idea, but then it also changes the color of the main text in the message above. How can I just change the color of the text in the comments?
