Hi there!

Using formatting rules I can make on an explorer view hightlight the text of the email address list, I can add background, change fonts, and other properties).

Is there a way that the email sender information keeps it's formatting when an email is opened? Or in other words, is it possible that the sender information be formatted with background or color change when the email is opened individually from the mail item list onto a new window for reading?

Programmatically, of course.

Hello Sergio,

The Outlook object model doesn't provide any property or method for that. But you may consider replacing the UI with your own form region. For example, you may consider replacing the whole inspector UI and display your own controls in the way you need. See Creating Outlook Form Regions for more information.
