Is there a way to override Dark Mode rendering in emails? It's rendering all my white backgrounds black/grey.

Hi Robert,
I think that's all user side rendering. You need to optimize your emails to render correctly when users use dark modes.

It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

If you do a web search for optimizing emails for dark mode, you'll see several pages offering similar tips on what you should do to setup for dark mode. Coffeecup needs to write a quick article to support their app. to keep users on their site.

Here is the work-around I came up with. To ensure my email's background remain white in darkmode, I leverage the URL function to set background image and referenced an all white jpeg. In addition, I also made sure the background color was set white so it rendered correctly in Outlook. Lastly, I made the text a dark grey which appears doesn't get covered in darkmode.

That's similar to what I read on a few of the sites I checked out. It's all about making it look good in both modes.
