When you use Microsoft Exchange 2000 Outlook Web Access (OWA) with a version of Microsoft Internet Explorer earlier than 5.0, the text colors for several areas, like the post form, contact form, and so on, are not hard-coded and follow the colors set by the user. The following are examples where colors are not hard-coded:

  • Mailbox: The number after a folder that indicates how many unread messages there are in that folder.
  • Post form and Post Reply form: The Posted To field.
  • Conversation and Close Message For: The Close button text.
  • Mail folder - View By Sender: The sender name.
  • Contact form: Almost all field labels.
  • Contacts folder - View By Company: The company name.
  • Contacts folder - View By Location: The location name.
  • Appointment form: The Close button text.
  • Calendar folder: Days of week for the calendar in the right frame.
  • Options page: Almost all text.
  • New Folder page: Text strings.
  • Rename Folder page: Text string.
  • Information and error messages (in yellow).


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server.
