Hello,

I sent an email with a gray box background.  With an email client, such as Mail or Gmail this appears correctly.  However, I noticed that on my iPhone this shows up as a dark blue rectangle/box.

What could be the reason for this?

Many thanks for your help!

>What could be the reason for this?

Every client interprets your code differently.  
Screens interpret color differently.
Html in email can be interpreted differently then html in your browser.

What was the code you used to set the background?
