As of these day I am still searching the 
"view->headers->..." as mentioned  in the following bug report. 
This will allow the select a background email decoration as default for all 
email, and not a single one see bugreport

Since after a very constructive "Too bad for you", (and a closing one or two 
bug closing as invalide (!) ) I am getting no other response, I come and ask 
here in the hope that someone is not as idiot as I am and can find this famous 
menu that does not appear here on my kmail 4.12....


I am using exactly the same version, 4.11.1 on Kubuntu, though English and in 
the main KMail window I have a View-Headers menu. On selecting that menu I 
have 6 options, I prefer the "Fancy Headers" personally.

It is not what I would call "email background" but it shows the mail headers 
in different ways. And it works as a global setting.

Am not sure if this helps you in any way and I agree the reply you got is a 
bit strange.

Kind regards,
