I agree! My eyes can't take an all Lite Mode Outlook, but the all Dark Mode Outlook with the Dark Mode reading pane is impossible. Links, images, backgrounds... everything is muddled in Dark mode and glaringly washed out in Lite mode. I have no choice but to select Lite Mode and adjust my brightness settings to save my eyeballs...then, readjust my brightness settings again for any photo editing I need to do. What a waste of time. Hopefully, we can go back to the split background option soon.

This is exactly my problem!! I want Dark Mode... but not in my reading pane aka actual emails. What the what? Today's latest update killed the comfortable middle ground and it's either ALL DARK or ALL LITE and my eyes can't take either. It's crazy and there is no compromise. What happened here? Please give us the option for Dark Mode with a Lite mode reading pane for reading/composing/sending email. Thanks!
