How to set your default font color


I use outlook for my e-mail.

Each time I start the body of a new e-mail document, the color of the font is yellow. I have gone to tools, format, etc. and have changed it to automatic black, with no success.

On the toolbar the format indicates "normal", when I click this I have to click "black" on the pull down menu to get it to be black not yellow.

How can this be corrected on a permanent basis?

Thank you for your assistance.
