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.

Would really appreciate if we have this ability to change the background for the reading pane to something dark. Thanks
C'mon Microsoft. Allow configuration of reading pane colours.
Like everyone else, the bright white is painful to use, especially when you have a dark theme.
Everyone's eyes will thank you. Sure it might overwrite some people's custom backgrounds and such in their email messages.. but no one wants to see that stuff anyways.

They are the same color as the background. Can't tell where it starts or stops. Go back to the old view or change the color.

Agree with the comments below, this would seem to be a critical accessibility issue for those of us with light sensitivity, especially from computer monitors.

like to be able to set the background color. White is too bright in my eyes.

it is possible to change the reading pane colour too, but that will require to change the windows colour to high contrast from personalize option. then all include office/ word, all window apps base color will be changed as per choice
Rather than just allowing the font colour of senders to be some basic colours can the background be coloured to make it stand out better? Also, more colour options that are paper.

Need reading pane in dark mode as well!
Yes please. Make this happen. Dark mode is not so dark after all...

So the functionality to have a dark background throughout the entire interface, INCLUDING the reading pane, exists in OWA... WHEN will this be available for the desktop app??? The stark contrast is awful.

Die Möglichkeit, dass man Mails in der Nachrichtenvorschau einen farbigen Hintergrund vergeben kann (z.B. ungelesen oder zur Nachverfolgung)
Show text of the color for us color-blind guys.

Please Microsoft, do us this one small justice...
this is ridiculous. i mean, microsoft, COMEOOOOONNNNNNNN. how hard is it to provide this functionality. feel like rippin my head off.
So, does anyone know how to change color of reading pane in outlook app? in dark theme. This is done by default in OWA, but can't find an option to do this in stanalone app.. this looks ugly, everything dark and white reading pane...
More contrast on Outlook folders. After update they got white. IT looks bad and is not good
