    Hey all,

    I don't know how it happened, but when I click on "write" to write email in T-Bird, the background is blue, I can't seem to change it. Would like the default white back.

    This is on my XP machine.

    Any ideas?


    Thanks,

    Heeter

    There is Format > Page colors and backgrounds. Maybe you changed something there?

    Thanks J,

    I managed to chage the color of the background, but it doesn't stick. I click on a new write and it reverts back to blue again.

    Did you close out Thunderbird and restart it after you set the background color? Also you did tick the box for "custom background color" before you set the color, yes?

    Yeah I know it's a very simple thing (ticking the box), but sometimes that simple thing can be overlooked.

    Hey All,

    Thanks for your input.

    Finally found the area:

    Tools->Options->"Composition" tab->"General" Tab.

    There is a restore button, and I hit and saved. Restarted T-Bird after.

    Thanks all,
