Dark mode in Webmail is only available in the email section but will be added to the Settings- Calendar - and Contacts pages in the upcoming months.
What is Dark mode?
Dark mode, also known as night mode, alters the colour scheme of your device's display by switching the light background with dark text to a dark background with light text. This feature can alleviate eye fatigue and improve usability in low-light environments. Additionally, some individuals find the dark mode visually pleasing for its aesthetic appeal.
How can I enable Dark mode?
When logged in to Webmail, click your email address in the top right corner and choose Dark mode under Appearance.
You can also enable Dark mode by clicking the Settings icon in the menu to the left → General → Appearance.
Note: Typically, you can access the appearance settings and choose between dark or light mode. If the dark mode setting is synced with your browser settings, it will automatically switch to dark mode when your browser is in that mode. Consequently, your Webmail will also be displayed in Dark mode when your browser is in this setting.
How can I disable Dark mode?
If you want to disable Dark mode or change to another mode or theme, click your email address in the top right corner and click Appearance.
You can also disable Dark mode by clicking the Settings icon in the menu to the left → General → Appearance.
Which modes can I choose between?
Currently, you can choose between these modes: Light mode, Dark mode and Set to browser.
Light mode and Dark mode are two visual modes available in Webmail that alter the colour scheme of the user interface. The Light mode uses a bright background and dark text, while the Dark mode uses a dark background and light text. These modes provide different visual options that may be more comfortable to your eyes or better suited to your preferences.
The Set to browser mode allows Webmail to automatically switch between light mode and dark mode based on your browser settings. If you have set your browser to dark mode, the Webmail interface will change to dark mode, and if you have set your browser to light mode, the Webmail interface will switch to light mode.
Can I see the content of a given email in light mode?
Yes, you can. Click the sun icon at the top of the email message; the content will be in light mode. The icon will then change to a moon icon, which switches back to dark mode when clicking on it.
