    How do I set the default to "No Color"?
    Right now all new email comes with an annoying fill effects pattern.

    Thanks

      You can change this by selecting blank theme. Go to File, Options, Mail and click the Stationery and Fonts button.
      Click the Theme button and choose (No Theme)
