Please do not limit this update to only the reading pane. Make sure this also applies to the following:
- viewing/reading an email in a new window (or popup)
- composing an email/editing a draft
- composing messages for meetings or other invitations
Instead of seeing Dark Mode as a theme, try to see Dark Mode as an accessibility tool similar to the Windows High Contrast Themes. (Also keep in mind that neither Mac OS X itself nor Outlook for OS X provide the user with the ability to customize their own theme--so we can't go in and modify a few problematic color settings locally to avoid the contrast.)
I can't say if most people who use Dark Theme use it for accessibility in the technical sense, but I believe most of us use it for the sake of reducing eye fatigue/eye strain in one form or another. Unfortunately, all it takes is one area not following Dark Mode rules to make the entire venture futile--worse, the contrast can be physically painful to the eye.
