How do I change the background color of an outgoing email?  I'd like the color to "stick", so the receiver can see the background color when he opens my email.  Thanks!

AFAIK that is only possible when you send the form with the mail, and that is not standard in the mail template. Other options to investigate are: HTML background setting, and CSS.

If this is only for Notes clients then you should be able to change the Memo form and set the template to send the form as Sjef mentioned.

For Internet, then sjef is also correct. HTML is probably best.

What is your goal here ?

It's not a very sophisticated goal...
I just want the receiver of my email to see a colored background when they open an email from me.  I remember HTML background commands from long ago...  Do I just write it inside tags<> in the body of the email?  
i.e.
<body background = #H88060>
...
...
</body>

P.S.  I don't know what "mail template" means.

If you do not have design access to your ail template ( most users do not ) then it will be quite difficult to resolve this,, without manually making changes for each email sent or perhaps using stationary.

I hope this helps !

Yes, that's what I'd like to find out...
How to MANUALLY change the background for an email.  I don't want to permanently change the template for every single outgoing email.

I just want the very basic steps for changing the background while writing one email.  Is that possible?

I tried and also could not find a solution.

You can change text fonts and colors but not the background.

I did not try any in depth HTML solution either.

I hope this helps !

While on the body of the e-mail, click on the properties icon or go to file - document properties. The third tab that has a rectangle with different shades has the colour setting for your background.

Good answer rrabie !

wrig8701 : you can then save it as stationary and use it whenever needed without having to do a manual change each time.

I hope this helps !

Excellent, rrabie had the solution.  Thank you!  I gave points to rrabie, and also to SysExpert for the suggestion about stationary, which works great if I make a neat background and want to use it again.  Thanks!
