Default Customizing threads in email by color

I am looking for a way to customize the email threads so that it is easier to see what I wrote and what others wrote in replies to me.

I've been writing back and forth with a person from a company who hasn't helped and hasn't replied back for a while. I want to somehow create a new email and copy paste the email threads I have had with this person and send to her and someone else in the company. Our company needs to get resolution to not having our account showing the order made nor the invoice even though we received part of the order. What also makes it hard to read what she wrote is that she never had a salutation with my name in it and there is an automatically entered text just above what she wrote saying "CAUTION: This email originated from outside your organization. Exercise caution when opening attachments or clicking links, especially from unknown senders.

So I want to have my emails somehow in different colors than the replies I have received. I have to copy/paste because this person didn't keep all replies in one thread. It would be great if there was a way to have Outlook 2016 automatically give the text I wrote in one color and the text the other person wrote in another color. Then if we keep replying back and forth it would be easy to see what I wrote and what they wrote. If I write an email to more than one person it would be great if each person had a different color. I have noticed that my most recent text in an email is in blue, but my previous texts in the nested thread are black. All of the other person's texts are in black along with all the automatic cautions by both her company and my company and all the To: and From: and Subject: are in black.
