My highlight color is black. Whenever I select a message in the browser or a contact in the address book, I can't read what I have selected because the both the text and highlighting are black.

Additionally, when an item in the folders frame of the browser is selected but that frame is not the active one, the white text on a light gray background is almost impossible to read.

These things must be fixed in the next release of Outlook Express.

You'll have to select a lighter color for highlights. OE 5.0 doesn't reverse the text color like most apps do when using black highlight.

I know that I could see whatever I highlighted if I used a lighter highlight color. My point was that it shouldn't be this way. It needs to be fixed.
