Steps to reproduce:

I tried to customise the appearance similar way as it is possible for the browser (Edit-Preferences-Apperance-Colours and then put the thick in the box 'Use system colours'). Regrettably such option does not exist for Mail & Newsgroup. 

Actual results:

In fact there is a way to set the favourite colours for text and background by selecting specific dyes. Unfortunately, some of the recipients of my messages are angry when I use my favourite turquoise (the same as the system default in my case) colour for the background.

Expected results:

Is it possible to implement the option box 'Use system colours' also for messages and not only for web sites? I don't like to use a default white colour of the background. I noticed that it is glaring too much for me. If you could consider my suggestion for the future development I would be grateful.

I haven't a clue what we are talking about. 
a) Contribute a document related step by step instruction containing every 
   key press and every mouse click how to reproduce your problem due to 
   (similar to report in Bug 1139273)
b) Attach screenshots with comments if you believe that that might explain the 
   problem better than a text comment. Best way is to insert your screenshots
   into a DRAW document and to add comments that explain what you want to show

No response, so closing!

@Reporter: Please feel free to reopen this Bug if you still can reproduce with a current SeaMonkey version and a current OS and if you can contribute a step by step instruction (containing every key press and every mouse click) how to reproduce the problem reliably.
