Dark mode makes it harder to discern read from unread emails at a glance.
Dark mode makes it hard to see new emails. The text is blue and bold and the left side of the row has a blue marker but the whole row doesn't seem to change color.
I'd like it to lighten up the whole row to make it more obvious which emails are new and unread.

Desktop version of Outlook Dark Mode on Default/Black theme looks like half done. The color scheme does not matching.
How can I get the similar dark mode color scheme as in Outlook Mobile for iPhone?
I am currently using the dark theme and am really liking it (it feels easier on the eyes than white. Could even do with an even darker theme, like fully black, as an extra option).
However the "unread" mails in my inbox are marked in dark grey, which is almost the same color as the background, which is pretty annoying. I would like to be able to set the color of unread mail titles, while keeping the dark theme, in order to more easily see instantly which mails have already been read and which haven't.

In outlook.com the app launcher during dark theme and dark background is still in white mode so make it dark as well so that design should match and it will save battery life as well and save eyes too at night. and overall look appears great. and make all apps matched according dark theme in launcher.

By forcing the colours in HTML emails to change this is making them unreadable as background images are not accounted for.
There needs to be a solution for email developers to work with darkmode rather than against it so that the accessibility of emails doesn't suffer. CSS has a media query for this, there are also color-scheme meta tags or just not converting content when there is a background image.
