            Bug ID: 414100
           Summary: Text not visible when using dark theme
           Product: kmail2
           Version: 5.9.3
          Platform: Debian stable
                OS: Linux
            Status: REPORTED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: UI
          Assignee: kdepim-bugs at kde.org
          Reporter: ernest.lewis at pm.me
  Target Milestone: ---

When using "Breeze Dark" Look And Feel, KMail displays HTML messages with no
background color set using the theme's default background color (dark grey). 
This makes it difficult/impossible to read text content, because the font color
defaults to black, and it is displayed on dark background.

1. Set "Breeze Dark" Look And Feel in System Settings 
2. Start KMail
3. Open an HTML email message containing text and with no background color set

The text content of the email message is difficult to read, sometimes not
readable at all, because it's shown as dark on dark background.

The text content of the email message should be readable, even if a dark theme
is set.

Operating System: Debian GNU/Linux 10
KDE Plasma Version: 5.14.5
Qt Version: 5.11.3
KDE Frameworks Version: 5.54.0
Kernel Version: 4.19.0-6-amd64
OS Type: 64-bit

I suggest the following possibile solutions:
(a) Force a white background when displaying an HTML message with dark
(default?) font color and unspecified background color.
(b) Let the user decide which background color to use for displaying HTML
messages whose background color is not set.
