Provide ability to change the color of the reading pane or set background and text color for the reading pane
The dark theme is great in Outlook, however the inability to change the background and text color of the reading pane make it almost painful.
It would be fantastic to have the ability to configure the default CSS for the reading pain and text/html therein.
I would like to set the e-mail background to black - I mean having white text on the black background directly in the e-mail. Let's save energy and user eyes :)
Not sure if this is currently available in Office 365 with the dark theme.

Let me change the color of the reading pane, e.g. text displayed white on black, or gray!

can we get nice colorful and themed background formats for emails, like we have different options in Powerpoint slides
the new color scheme "sucks"!!!!!
I have somewhat the same, but this concerns the middle pane where the list with messages reside.
Only in the darker theme the background is changed which looks weird, please add the real dark theme and let us change things within the panes!

Please, I need other darker colours. I can not see this soft blue. If we can change and choose the colours. Thanks

Please develop a dark mode for actual message reading or preview panes similar to what Apple has done (which you have enabled in your own Outlook App for iOS - which I love and is exactly what I'd love to see in the main desktop application!). Thanks!
Make the words black not gray.
All the tabs and labels are gray. Use color to make things look different.
I can not tell what has been read or not.

Where do your eyes spend most of their time in Outlook. The reading pane. So why must our retinas be burned when choosing a "Black" theme?
Цветной фон, или подбадривающие записки
Colored background, or encouraging notes
Запустить возможность менять цветовой фот почты, как целиком, так и частями
Launch the ability to change the color photo mail, in whole or in part

I 81st this request. Please add a dark mode that applies to the actual messages themselves. Thank you!
These are game-changing accessibility options for people who struggle to track words while reading. It would be incredible to have this option in Outlook - and to use them even if the "colourful" theme is activated.
This would be a great feature. It is so annoying that in dark mode, the reading pane stays white.
il serait bien de pouvoir modifier la couleur d’arrière plan de office
it would be nice to be able to change the background color of office too much contrast between the color of the banner and the work area
trop de contraste entre la couleur du bandeau et la zone de travail
It would be nice to be able to change the background color of galley
too much contrast between the color of the headband and the work area

The navigation pane on the left should be gray, like Outlook Web (or even customizable), to tell apart the various parts of the UI.
The same goes for the "To-do" pane on the right.
Please add a dark theme to the Reading Pane!
Need to be able to adjust font and size of text in subject column. Text way too light and skinny for the bright white background. I may have to look elsewhere for email software I can read.

At present, it's impossible to alter the background colours of the reading plane or certain message (in a new window) with Outlook. I would like to be able to select a colour for the background as well as a specific font colour when viewing messages.
It's appalling this feature hasn't been included.
allow background and toolbar color settings changes
Инверсия цвета фона входящего сообщения
Invert background color of incoming message
Сегодня в настройках обнаружил черную тему Outlook и с удовольствием её включил. Но все входящие сообщения поступают с белым фоном и черным текстом, что ужасно режет глаза.
Собственно, моё предложение по развитию черной темы приложения. Добавить галочку, которая позволяет инвертировать цвет фона (с белого на черный) и текста (с черного на белый) входящего сообщения в области чтения сообщения.
Today in the settings I found a black Outlook theme and turned it on with pleasure. But all incoming messages come with a white background and black text, which terribly hurts my eyes.
Actually, my proposal for the development of the black theme of the application. Add a check mark, which allows you to invert the background color (from white to black) and text (from black to white) of the incoming message in the message reading area.
