Default outlook 2019 basic text functions grayed out / disabled


all of the functions under the basic text on the ribbon are grayed out / disabled. this creates two problems, first you cant change the font size, color, etc on the ribbon and second when replying the font is still black/automatic. which makes it hard to distinguish the reply from the original message.

i have been trying to figure out how to change the font color in a reply. i went to options/mail/stationary and selected pick a new color when replying and it set it to the default blue color. but it is not taking. there is no change in color.

It appears that you have created the message as plain text. Plain text is exactly that - plain - and does not support formatting. If you want colours change to html format.
