Try <th style="color:red">
# 5  
Or perhaps <th bgcolor=red style="color:white">
# 6  
Oh Sorry my mistake,

change
Code:
e=" style=\"color=red;\""

to
Code:
e=" style=\"color:red;\""

i tried as per your modification even though it does not display the heading as color.
Code:
awk 'BEGIN{print "<table border=1 width=100% cellspacing=0 cellpadding=0 align=center>"}{c="td"; e=""}FNR==1{c="th";e=" style=\"color:red;\""}{print "<tr>";for(i=1;i<=NF;i++)printf("<%s%s>%s</%s>\n",c,e,$i,c); print "</tr>"} END{print "</table>"}' mail_send.txt
