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,


Heeter

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
