Can you please give some font color options to the new interface inbox? The older font colors work much better for older eyes. The new font color really blends into the background, making it hard for aging eyes to see.
Also, please bring back the "refresh" button by the inbox. It was very convenient.

I would be very grateful if we had more flexibility on custom font colors when we create messages, as I had a certain font that people recognize and it helps me to sort things out quickly when I need to conduct a review. Anything that you can do to allow for that ability would be much appreciated. Thank you!
I am composing an email and would like to increase the font size. Yet the font icon at the bottom of the screen is grayed out. What gives?
Heather Smith commented
I find that the fonts and messages are so light and cannot read them! I cannot find where to correct this problem
The font is far too light and barely readable. I cannot find a setting to change it. Very difficult to use. How do I change the display font?
How do you change the color, font, etc. when you are typing in Outlook.com?

You need to stop using low contrast fonts, such as gray on white. These make content unnecessarily hard to read. There is no excuse for doing that.
When the presently-selected line of my e-mail is highlighted with the same color as the screen background, it makes the text less visible. (I need all the visibility help I can get). What can be done to maintain the contrast?
Why is the new Outlook update in GREY? Why can't the letters be in BLACK? The grey is too difficult to see and read. Can I change this to black?
I opened my st Outlook Mail account a couple days ago.
I notice that the far left "Folders Column" titles "In Box, Junk Mail, Drafts, Sent Items, Deleted Items & Archives" cannot be identified visually without having to run the cursor over the ever-so-slight letter tips that do show for each folder.
Can this be corrected?
Thank you for your time.
I'm an old guy and see just fine with my glasses.However the tendency of website,yours included that like to to use microscopic 'ghost" print in a light blue font on a white background are unreadable to me.
I don't have time to dig around in all the options to change it to something I can see.And don't feel that I should have to.
What ever happened to a 6 or 8 font in black on a white background? I guess the programmers think that this new one is more cool.
Anyhow,things that are not useful to me are not used.this included !
Thank you for the opportunity to rant against garbage.

I would suggest Microsoft assist and make user friendly lettering applications for the elderly and others with vision problems, by making email and other lettering dark in color, making it easier to read.

GRAY ON WHITE IS VERY HARD FOR A 79 YEAR OLD MAN TO READ. BLACK ON WHITE W0RKS MUCH BETTER,
I find the text in Outlook Mail to be too small and too faint. Like everything on this particular Feedback webpage.
When I print an email, the print is so faint it looks like I am having INK problems.
Please Microsoft. I cannot read the gray font that you have put on Outlook 365 and now websites are adopting it. My 20/20 eyes are burning by the end of the day with eye strain. Help.

Font Color Options
There are not enough font color options. Please add two features to make this better.
1. Add a feature to select a color by entering rgb or html tag for a color. This option is available in Mozilla Thunderbird, see that for example or see the image here: http://i.share.pho.to/e1060498_o.jpeg
2. MS Outlook has the "recent colors used" feature that shows the recent colors used that can be selected. Add this feature with #1 (above).

There aren't many font color options. You should take a look at Thunderbird's setup for color options. You should do what they did. Add a bar (rgb, hex, etc) to allow the user to enter a number for the desired color. You should also save the last three used colors (like it's it's done in Outlook email client).
While you're at that please also add an "insert horizontal bar" option also.

The numbers of the calendar are very fade. I looked into calendar appearence but you can only make stronger colours of the boxes, the colour number cannot be changed apparently :-(
Anne Johnstone commented
Can you make the font in this suggestion box bigger and darker please? I am really struggling to see it. Thanks :)
