  • Hi,

    Sorry for keeping you waiting.

    Based on my research and test, we may take the following steps to change the default reply text color in Outlook 2013:

    1. Go to File > Options > Mail > Stationery and Fonts, navigate to the Personal Stationery tab.
    2. Select Use my font when replying and forwarding messages (You might need to choose a Theme to modify this option, then select No theme if you do not need a theme for new HTML e-mail message.).
    3. Click the Font button, choose black for replying and forwarding messages:
