Dark mode issue

Reported by Andrew S. | February 4th, 2023 @ 12:55 PM


I just started using MailMate today, thus far I really like the app and I adore that it uses Markdown.

Issue: Dark Mode

I am using MailMate Version 1.14 (5937)
Running on macOS Catalina version 10.15.7, set to dark mode at all times.

Because of my visual impairments, I need dark mode in order to read for any extended period of time.

No dark mode for preview?

While my system is set to dark mode, and all of the app's interface is in dark mode, when I compose a new message the message preview is in light mode with a white background and black text.

I also emailed it to one of my other accounts and the received email was also in light mode, with a white background and black text again despite being in system wide dark mode.

But when I viewed that same email in the MacOS native Mail app, it displays properly in dark mode.

Package css files

I looked at the package continents for the MailMate app, I found a number of CSS files, though they all do seem to have a dark mode media query, except "details.css" where the dark mode query is commented out. I didn't see a specific CSS file that seemed to directly relate specifically to the preview window or received email.

Related feature request

It would be great to have a switch or preference to force dark mode for any incoming email, probably best on a per email basis.

Additionally, it would be awesome for accessibility if there was a way to create user style sheets.

Thank you for reading
