Personally my color preference for email messages (and most other windows) is a dark background with a light foreground, but others may like/need different color settings. I can format the messages I send to let the recipient's email client choose the color settings (
Page Colors and Background and select
Reader's default colors (Don't set colors in page)) and this does what I want it to do, but I have to set this every time I want to send a message.
I can get around this by de-selecting
Compose messages in HTML format in the account's
Composition & Addressing settings, but this disables the use of HTML in composition and I have other components (usually tables) in the messages that I would prefer to use HTML for.
How can I set Thunderbird to always use
Reader's default colors (Don't set colors in page) instead of setting custom colors in an HTML message? An account-specific setting would be preferred, but a global setting would also be useful. I can't seem to find a setting for this in the Thunderbird
Forcing recipients to override pre-defined colors on incoming messages is not a feasible option, especially in enterprise environments.
I am using the latest Thunderbird beta (33.0) on Xubuntu 14.04.1 LTS (trusty).
